Making contact with others,
who are researching the same surnames as you, is an important
step in genealogical research. Campbell County TNGenWeb provides
a Surname Database for genealogical researchers to "connect"
with other researchers .
View the Surnames
in the Database. You can
view a list of the available surnames by selecting the first
letter of the surname. The list can be ordered alphabetically
by surname or the name of the person submitting the surname.
To contact the submitter, simply click on the submitters
Surnames. If you have ancestors
in Campbell County, Tennessee, please feel free to register
your surnames so that other researchers may contact you.
Due to the fact that,
people periodically switch ISPs, about twice a year I will
send out an email to those folks who have registered their
surnames in the database. If you have registered a surname
and receive such an email, there is nothing for you do except
delete the email. I am just checking for email bounces.
As long as your email does not bounce, I will not remove
your surnames. If you have registered a surname and
change ISPs, please let me
know so that I can update the database.
do not enter individual names - this is for SURNAMES (last
enter a VALID
email address or your entry will be deleted!!
Surname entry has been revised to send entries to a
monitored database because of certain people who delight
in putting spam & junk into the files. Now, when
you enter your surname, your entry will not immediately
appear online but will be stored in a database for the
website administrator to verify and approve for display. This
could take several days at times. Because of this new design
and to show down the entry of spurious data, the form will
now only take one surname entry at a time. I apologize
for this inconvenience. Please note: I am capturing
ip addresses with each entry so if spam is entered it will
be reported back to the originating ISP.
