Adding Your Posting |
To add an entry to GenSource's Common Threads Surname database, please complete the following form and click on
Submitted names will be added to Common Threads at our earliest convenience. As always, we reserve the right to reject
submissions based upon the appropriateness of their content.
The goal of Common Threads is to help each of us get beyond the "dead ends" we all encounter in our research by connecting
with others who are researching the same line. The intent of Common Threads is not to have everyone enter all the names in
their family. The idea is to enter the name of the person in your line that you can't find enough information on, in hopes that
there is someone else out there researching the same family line who will find your entry in Common Threads and e-mail you to
exchange information. In summary, simply enter the information on an ancestor for which you are seeking information. For
example, if your research has stopped at John Snyder and you can't find his father, enter all the information you have on John.
