The Yancey Family Surname Resource Center
and Yancey Family Researchers across the world -
Would appreciate YOUR HELP!
 



The Yancey Family Surname Resource Center and the Yancey Family Genealogical Database - represent information gathered by a multitude of Yancey researchers over many decades. It would never have be what it is today without many dedicated researchers that have gone before us.

The Yancey Family Researchers Database - shows just how many different people are interested in some aspect of Yancey family history & genealogy.

As we work jointly together in the collection and analysis of Yancey information - we can accomplish more than if we simply work alone.

For this reason I ask for your assistance in any of the following areas - or any other areas you think you may be able to help.

I would also be interested in your ideas. 
Please email me and share your ideas and thoughts about how you might be able to dedicate some time and effort toward Yancey Family Genealogy and how we can make the effort more of a collaborative one.
 

Hope to hear from you.

Military Pension Records There are many War of 1812 and Civil War Pension records in the National Archives - which very few people have seen - I wonder if some of them may provide information we don't currently have. Many of these pensions and military records are now available at Ancestry.com or Fold3.com.

Thos who have access to these databases can help in extracting copies of these records for the Yancey Family Surname Resource Center.
