POTTS SURNAME WEBSITE
Here you will find:
Information on the POTTS surname and it's variations.
- Information on the Potts Family arms and crest. (Currently NOT available, I'm working on it.)
- A searchable relational database containing over 31,400 POTTS surnamed individuals (plus their 16,000+ spouses) who lived in the 16th to early 20th centuries throughout the world. Boolean (logical) searching is incorporated, with up to eleven search criteria being allowed.
- An alternate seach capability, Picosearch, which allows you to scroll through the entire database, one alphabetical section at a time or, search the entire website for any information.
- A separate method using Picosearch to display Potts known to have been born in the U. K. (England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland). These individuals are also listed in the regular Potts Surname Database, but the separate record files will be much smaller (about 500 to 6,000 idividuals) and provide faster scrolling searches. Search results will provide the same information found in the larger Potts Surname Database.
- A spreadsheet listing over 120 ancestral lines (called bushes here since they are not yet trees) assigned to about a third of the individuals in the database, with information to help you find your bush.
- Information on over thirty publications and other printed sources of POTTS genealogical data, some of which are downloadable from this site.
- A list of some sources of POTTS information available on the Internet.
- A listing of all the inquirers/researchers (over 1,000), and their email addresses (if known), who have contacted me for help, indexed by the Potts individual or surname line they are working on.
- A section on genealogical DNA usage and how you can be tested and then compare your DNA with others on available web sites in order to find ancestral origin and perhaps kin.
- A Guest Book that you can sign if you choose, that is shared with site visitors. Tell visitors who or what family you are researching.
- A Feedback Form to provide me with information regarding any difficulties you encountered on the site or, perhaps a brief summary of your success.
