Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. The "www.nelan.org" web site is our attempt to record what we have learned about our family history so far (some roots dating back to the 1500's). In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals is to help the existing & next generation of our family to know their roots. At the moment, we have barely even scratched the surface of our family history. But, with the help from others in the family, I'm sure we can get alot of information recorded.
The site has been established to allow our various related families to communicate, share information, and collaborate on all aspects of family news - past, present and future. It is open for viewing by anyone, anywhere - but privacy controls restrict certain data to registered family members only. In particular, without registration you cannot see any information about living individuals.
If you are a descendent of anyone listed on the site, please Register as a site user. That doesn't cost anything (and no spam will call!) - Once we 'approved' your registration - it will allow you to see details for people still alive, and let you suggest additions (or changes) for the branch of the family that you belong to.
Get involved in researching your roots, you will find if very interesting and somewhat addictive....
