Chambers Family Heritage

This web site is dedicated to all the family descendants and ancestors of those born or married into the Chambers and all the numerous other families and many clans who lent their names to this fine gathering of ancestors and descendants. Over 21,000 individual names, over 7,000 surnames and thousands of photographs and documents are included. Some lines have been traced back to the 12th century -- the time of the Crusades -- and some even further nearly to the time of Christ.

This is (and always will be) a work in progress. I hope that any family members or friends who view the site and can offer corrections or data which is missing will not hesitate to e-mail, snail mail, or call the web master (see below). We appreciate pictures, too, but please, don't send originals. Get good copies made or contact the web master so he, perhaps, can come to you with a scanner. The risk of loss during shipping is too great.

Donations are appreciated, too, since this site is funded entirely by volunteers. This is your web site, and is put in place to honor our great family. Please let us know what you know!

All information is documented in some fashion, and where possible, citations as to source are included in each entry, available simply by clicking anywhere you see a super-scripted number. We hope, therefore, this makes our web site a valuable genealogical research tool. If you have geneaology software, you can download the data in this web site by clicking the Download Gedcom file link below and using your software's "Import" function.

One last thing . . . If you are still among the living, only your name appears in the web site, and nothing personal about you. This is for your protection. If, perchance, you don't want your name appearing on the site for whatever reason, please contact us and we will replace it only with the word "Living", no questions asked.

To get started, click below on "Surname List", and pick from among the hundreds of family last names displayed as a beginning point. This will take you to an alpabetical listing. Scroll down until you see the person for whom you are looking and click on the name. Many entries have a "Scrapbook" link next to the primary person in the mini-biography. Click this link to view photos and drawings. If you simply want to browse the database starting at person number 1, click the "Selected Families/Individuals" below. Now, sit back, relax, and take a tour . . . of YOUR heritage!
