IN THE NEWS
Welcome to the Slaven Genealogy Exchange! Our purpose is to be a central location to collect and exchange information for Slaven, Slevin, Slavin, Slavey, and other surname variations. As a registered one-name study, the scope of this exchange is world wide. We hope there's something here for the beginning genealogist, the old hand, and the merely curious!
Upgrade sale at FamilyTreeDNA!
FTDNA is having a Father's Day on upgrades for people who have taken a Y-DNA test from them. The sale prices make upgrading to additional markers attractive! Email me if you have questions about how (or whether) to upgrade.
Upgrades must be ordered and paid for by midnight Wednesday, June 19, to take advantage of the sale.
A member of our DNA project's "Group C" had a special single-marker test done, to see if he shared the same very rare value of 8 on marker GGAAT1B07 as the other members of the group. Sure enough, he does, strongly indicating that all five members share a common ancestor several centuries ago. Check it out on the extended results page.
Test results for a new member of the Slaven DNA project have been added under the "Other Individuals" classification on the results page.
New photos have been added to the photos page.
A new family line has been added to the Slaven DNA project under Group C. Check the results and extended results pages for the results.
A couple of our "Group A" members in the Slaven DNA project have received upgrades. Check the extended results page for more information.
Another country ("Roumania") has been added to the collection of Slaven's California Fruit Salt trade cards.
Not so new any longer, but a section has been added to the website, dealing with Australian heavyweight boxer Frank Slavin. All 16 chapters of Frank's life story from an Australian newspaper in 1926 have been posted, along with some information on Frank's Irish heritage.

I'm a software engineer for a company in the Des Moines suburbs. Besides genealogy, I'm also involved with collie rescue and am working on completing my degree though guided independent study at the University of Iowa. I'd love to spend much more time working on this website but until retirement in 15 years or a lottery jackpot win, it's going to have to remain a hobby.
