This Family group is dedicated to finding the "First On Shore" Ancester
of Reuben Walker (1792 - 1857).
It is also to be the focal point for the living decendants of Reuben Walker in North
America. .... plus we also must include the parts of the family whose parents may have
left these shores and you call home the United Kingdom or elsewhere.
Our long term objective would be to find the family connection to England, Scotland
or where ever this journey takes us.
The Moderator currently is the founder Randall A Walker (Rand) who has been
gathering the Reuben Walker Family history since 1981. This is what you can expect to
be accomplished during the Summer of 2011
- Selection of a location for a Reuben Walker Family Group Communications which at
this point I believe will be a Facebook page for Reuben Walker
- Completing entry of records in the Reuben and Elizabeth Walker Family Archive. This
involves entering volumes of paper data and imaging photos and documents.
- Establish a privacy and security policy for information on living family members
Reuben Walker and Elizabeth Douglas Archive and Family Tree
The initial release of the online records for the
Decendents of Reuben and Elizabeth is now available. This is a summary of
the full family history kept in the family Data Base managed by Rand Walker. For researhers
who want to browse the Photo Tree, Name Index, Gallery and Document Archive here is
a summary of what you will find.
- Dashboard -
This is where you should start. This links to the resources and tools below,
statistics on current archives, a name search, and the live people privacy statement.
Photo Tree - This is a tour through the descendents of Reuben Walker and
Elizabeth Douglas. Where available a photo of the person, a gravestore or some key document
is shown. From here you can link to a photo gallery and documents if available.
You can travel up and down the family tree. This is not
the best way to search for individuals, but it is one way to travel through the family
- Gallery -
This gallery is for each person in the Family Tree where photos or imaged items are
available. It can be best reached from the Photo Tree or Name Index.
- Document Archive -
The archive has documents that have been imaged because the document has written content
best shown as a document or to show the original sources for many names and dates.
- Name Index -
This is a good starting point for finding family names you know or would like
to start a review by using the tree, gallery or documents. This also shows the persons
birth date if not living.
