FAQ's, Table of Contents and a Glossary are available to help move around our site easier. FAQ's will save you the time of waiting for an answer to that "urgent" question.

What Places did your RUTLEDGE ancestors live? And what records did they leave behind? The information in this section is divided into Country, State/Province, County and City.Find the location and you might find the ancestor, or at least some clues as to where they may have come from or gone.
Working on Projects together through the Association will allow us to tackle things that we would shy away from as individuals. If we all do a "little", then we all can benefit "a lot". Current and future projects as well as assignments will be updated on a regular bases. A "Sign up" form is available.
Queries is where you can post a request for information on those elusive ancestors on a World Wide "Bulletin Board". Please follow the instructions carefully so that your results will be as successful as possible. You can also register your RUTLEDGE surname and home pages as well as enter information about yourself so that others may contact you both on and off the Internet.
We hope you decide to join us soon!
