1. Clark and Clarkston Family and 2. Genealogical Anthology Updated February 21, 2011
About Our Family Research
The Clark/Clarkston/Clarkson Online project is a major addition to my 1980 publication "The Bonds of Union, Vol. I" which was, and still is, dedicated to the Descendants of Thomas Clarkston b. 1787, d. 1858 Lee Co, VA and his wife, Elender 'Nellie' Feathers. This online version is an accumulation of 30 years additional research on this family, including an abundance of documentation.
This Clark/Clarkston project is now being administered by Elon C. Bingham <email@example.com>
The CCC Genealogical Anthology project (below) is a new project, in it's infancy but expected to grow rapidly once ready for introduction to the public.
CCC Genealogical Anthology (1 KB) Generally speaking, an Anthology is a collection of semi-related material that is organized and presented as chapters in the same volume ... most commonly associated with short stories in a book.
The need for such a vehicle as this Anthology arises from the natural occurrences inherent to genealogical
research. Every genealogical researcher has, over the years, accumulated a wide variety of source records and other data that did not prove to be of value to their particular projects du jour, but I have yet to meet a genealogist who has ever thrown out that data. We have meticulously filed that data away just as carefully as if it had been "The golden scrolls". Heavens to Mergatroid! We wouldn't THINK of hrowing it out. We might need it someday.
We have joined forces to prevent our life's research, from being thrown out when we no longer have control of it.
This media is intended to be a single outlet to store, preserve and present all this data in an organized fashion that will hopefully be useful to family historians and researchers now, and for many years to come. It is intended to be our gift to the Genealogical Community.
