Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Well folks, it took forever, but I finally got the Melendy name added to Genforum. Hopefully this will help everyone who is trying to find a connection to the Melendy ancestry. My aunt, Georgia Cook George wrote a book about the Melendy Family in America 1701-1981. The family lines go all the way back to the Revolutionary War. I remember that my grandmother, Eva Anderson Sears was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Some of you out there already have this book as a result of Georgia's printing in 1982 and having copies sent to family members. I have received numerous queries to see if family members are listed in it and have doled out minimal parts out of it. It is out of print and I don't know how to get more. Maybe someone out there knows how to get this done. I can look up names and give an ancestral line or two, but, please realize that this takes a lot of time. If anyone else out there would like to volunteer to look up names out of their books, we would all appreciate it. There used to be a Melendy website, but the last time I tried to go to it, it was gone. My main hope here is to connect all the Melendys together. If you are in the book, you are a Melendy cousin.
