Just another family tree website?

This is a family Collection website, with a biography page for every relative and a comprehensive collection of documents, all searchable, for the benefit of future generations.

Am I already on the Ada Tree?

To find your own biography, go to Names and see if you are already listed. If you are listed, then Register from the bottom menu of your biography. otherwise register here.

Can I add as many relatives as I want?

In principal, if they are the same surname or directly related, you can. If you stray too far from the trunk of the tree we might require you to start a separate tree

Can I see my own tree?

Each relative has their ancestry listed in their biography page. If you are logged in and related to this relative, click on Relationship for a tree diagram

What can I add on a biography page?

Biographies are the heart of The Surname Tree. Basic information on the relative is added automatically, it is up to you to put some meat on the bone. See William Ada as an example of a full biography.

What do I do with photos?

You can upload one photo to each section of a biography. If the back of the photo has anything of interest, make sure you include that as well. For example, if you click on the photo of Cecelia Doris Vaughan you can see the back of the photo.

What do I do with certificates?

There is a full set of options for uploading, transcribing and searching birth, baptism, marriage, divorce and death certificates so that for each relative you know which documents mention them. These TST documents are private to the family, although outsiders can purchase a download to contribute to running costs (see Subscriptions). An example can be seen here, which can be further updated if more relatives are identified.
