What is Kingealogy?

In basic terms The Kingealogy is the study of Kings, but in our case, it is a twenty plus year journey of our family genealogy. For me it started in childhood with Dad teaching me our past, making sure we went to family reunions and moving onto Family Tree Maker when first released. For Tom it was his grandfather talking to him about his kin and organizing the annual Tennessee King Reunion.

Tom and I began Kingealogy in early 2000 and first launched the website on November 3rd, 2001. We are back online and excited to meet and network with even more relatives!

We want Kingealogy to be more than a place to display our digital tree. The goal is to build a community, and a common resource repository for census records, birth certificates, death certificates and additional resources. Our family is more than dates, facts, sources and resources. Together we will make this a place to share their stories, photos and more.
