Committed to making & keeping FREE access to Genealogy
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, tho monetray donations will not be refused.
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 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.
