In the 800 years since the first Home/Hume appeared on the scene the family has grown substantially. Homes and Humes have made their mark in all walks of life and in most of the countries around the world. The task of cataloging such a vast and spreading family tree is immense.
Initially we will concentrate on the direct line of the Earls of Home (in the form of scanned pdf documents available to download) but aim to progressively grow this to encompass all branches of the clan and family. This will be a long term project and we will be calling on the expertise and knowledge of clan and family members far and wide to provide information about their particular branch.
Two strands of work are underway: the Home/Hume Genealogy tree and the One Name Family Tree.
Home/Hume Genealogy Tree
This is the original genealogy database of the Home/Hume family. Sources for this database are histories, manuscripts, periodicals and genealogies from many Home/Hume contributors over the years from every corner of the world. Those wishing to contribute to this exercise are asked to provide any genealogy tree additions or corrections to the information in this database to firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a Home/Hume Genealogy Tree hyperlink to www.clan-home.org/tree/index.htm
If you would like to be involved in this process we would welcome your input but would suggest that this will be quite a serious undertaking as we will require several generations worth of information and historically accuracy. If you would like to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
One Name Family Tree
We are building a One Name Family Tree on www.ancestry.co.uk, the genealogy website. A number of Hume /Home family historians are adding their branches to the tree which is growing fast.
Our aim is for all members of the Clan Home Association to have their branches on the site and, if possible, we can link up branches. Find out how to become part of this project by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
You do not need to be a member of the Ancestry website to take part in this project.
