Diana, Goddess of the Hunt
This web site consists of over 18,000 pages of genealogical data.
It can be searched via Google, or you can use the finding aids below.
Custom Search 
Please be aware that Google does a very poor job of indexing of my site, and it does so because I'm not paying the $750/yr they would charge me to index it thoroughly — they do not totally index sites the size of this one with an onsite search box for free!  In particular, it focuses on the titles of pages, rather than their content, so it is likely to pick up the titles of all the census pages (and there are hundreds of them), without picking up any of the content, which is a total waste because the census pages themselves are best found via the indices to them. So, do go ahead and give the search engine a try for a quick find, but please don't go away without consulting the tools below, or you will almost certainly be missing something.

Ironically, Google will give you fairly thorough search results if you will leave my site and search from their main page including my domain as a search term —

In addition to the navigation bar at the bottom of every page, throughout this site clicking the image of the Goddess Diana at the upper and lower left corners of the page will bring you back here, to the Table of Contents, while clicking on her image at the upper and lower right corners of the page will take you to the Every-Name-Indices Hub.
The largest sections of this site consist of family group sheets (13,400+ pages) and census extractions (2800+ pages); there are small sections for DNA projects (480+ pages) and pedigree charts (80+ pages).  These sections can be reached via:
  • An Every-Name-Index Hub for indices to the family group sheets only.
  • A publicly accessible http://dgmweb.net/FGS/ folder where family group sheets can be browsed by the husband's name.  Note that the /Lyon/ folder contains all spelling variations of the name, including those beginning with "de."  Also, there is a /GKC/ folder that contains just my GRONINGER / KRONINGER / CRONINGER kin.
  • A Census home page with links to the various census hubs.
  • A DNA Hub with links to my DNA projects, analyses, and other information on DNA testing.
  • A Pedigree Charts home page with links to the root individuals of the pedigrees.
Plus home pages for my father's and mother's surnames:
Our Danish Roots — a section dedicated to my father's Danish ancestry, linked to a regional Danish DNA project.
STRAUB Home Page — a section dedicated to STRAUB and similar German surnames, linked to a STRAUB Y-DNA surname project.

And two pages to make it easy for my near relatives to jump to our "gee whiz" ancestors:

Kin of My Father Kin of My Mother

Not every file on this site fits into the above categories, so…
The links below are intended to help you find pages not linked directly from the above.

Links to Other Content
The 350 or so files linked below constitute a small fraction of the material on this web site.  As time permits, I'm gradually incorporating this documentation into the Sources of the relevant family group sheets, rather than leaving them as separate files as was my practice when I began this site.  Therefore, this list is getting shorter, rather than longer, although it won't go away entirely because not every file is suitable for incorporation into a family group sheet.  Please note that the bulk of the documentation on this site already resides on the family group sheets and is not linked below.
