Use of this site is for PERSONAL research only - future intent of copy of it and my manuscripts are
to donate the full contents of the website and the online manuscripts; as well as the word processing
and genealogical databases (PAF, RootsMagic etc.) to the the New England Historic Genealogical Society
(NEHGS) when I no longer can maintain the site and do research.
PLEASE NOTE that I will not contact you by mail nor have any one else to contact you by mail for material. I have been contacted to relinquish my rights or give permission to use material from this site I assume and the 1982 book and asking for me donate a copy of the book to him. I HAVE NOT GIVEN PERMISSON FOR USE OF ANY OF THIS MATERIAL FOR ANOTHER HARD COPY PRINTED VERSION.
Who is the Emery Family Research Association ? - Behind the scenes It's one person me as compiler and designer of the site - but it is thousands of descendants of the name of Emery; anyone who is willing to share Emery family data freely with others.
Cost: - FREE, except for * donations of material, * corrections sent * patience and understanding * tho monetray donations will not be refused alot of work has to be done yet to convert the site to a page like this - also I have found a method to "drop ship" my manuscript into a webpage without alot of coding and formatting behind the scenes final result will be this design - there will be alot of work behind it but it may help eliminate the need to keep a seperate Word file also but some WOrd formattign will have to be over-ridden some of which will still be evidient in the pages. Woord put in alof of excess doing that was not needed and made it very hard to edit the web pages unless totally re-done. Hoepfully this new method will allow instant editing on the page and then the Word manuscrpit files also.
What started it? - I was lucky when Charles L. Edington started digging on the Emery's and found out there was the Emery book. He sent to the Library of Congress and got an copy and then had a copy made for me. The book had the start of the Charles Sigel Emery family in it 2 of the 12 children - grandfather missed being in it by months as was born August 1890. Of course when I started got the shock of my life that grandfather was just one of a family of 12 children - While we were updating and digging for lost Greene county cousins they kept telling us that they wish they had a copy of the book.
When started: 1982 - it was a quarterly booklet fo at least 50 pages; and half of it was dediated to publishing what I had on Anthony's section; updates or corrections for John's section; queries; Emery material found. Cost was $5 for the year just to cover the postage and prinitng of the booklet. I have no idea if any of the booklets survive as yet - they were possibly published until about 1984-5 maybe into 1986. This was all done by typewriter back then - and the number was under 100.
Objective: Is to promote free help and research for Emery Descendants and to circulate as much of the findings as possible. I had query as to what the association is - now it is this site. Simple version - cousins helping cousins - I hope.
