1,042 Family Tree Names and surnames table – Update – Now 1,340 trees
Updated: 18 Nov 2019 – See bottom of this post for a link to latest PDF.
Time to celebrate because I have completed my MIONSIOG Family Tree project.
As my readers know, I look for stories in old newspapers and when I find an interesting one, I create a family tree using the information in the newspaper item. I create the tree on Ancestry dot com and therefore I get hints if there are records or family trees that fit the criteria I entered on the tree. I send a message to the tree owners telling them about the newspaper item and the family tree created to hold a screen print of the newspaper item. I have created 1,042 family trees using this method and have now completed a table which shows the names of the trees and the surnames found on these 1,042 trees.
The screen print below is of a section of the PDF file, it shows what to look for when looking for your family name(s).
The first column shows a group number which is used to connect different tree by some common name or event (See text file of group numbers).
The second column shows the surnames found in the 1,042 family trees [some are highlighted to access a blog posting].
The third and last column shows the name of the 1,042 family trees [all are highlighted so that one can view the tree number or even get to the actual tree].
On this screen print, some words and areas are circled or boxed to point out things to look for when using this PDF file.
Notice that the chart is sorted by Surname so that the names will line up to show what family trees have these Surnames.
Some of the surnames like “Anderson” shown here, have links to a blog. The blog posting used the family tree or a person on the tree and therefore one can get to the blog, as well as the Family Tree.
Notice “Andrews” can be found on two (2) Family Trees:
“Dr. W H Andrews Obit Conn 1890”
and “WWII jungle marriage Macer to Andrews 1943 – Indiana”.
Also Angevie, Annibal and Anthony are on two (2) different Family Trees.
UPDATE: 16 August 2017
A new column has been added to the table to show the State or Provence or county where the family tree is located. The main subject of the tree comes from a particular location and that is the location used in the new column.
Below is a screen print to show what the new column looks like; the link follows.

If you find a surname, then you can see the family trees where the name is used and it might also have been used in a blog posting.
