IN THE NEWS
FRANK SLAVIN, PUGLIST
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!
New extended DNA test results are back for two members of the Slaven DNA Project Group B. See the results on the extended results page.
I've introduced a blog. The first two posts are up, an introduction and a feature on my great-great-grandfather, James Slavens of Hnedricks County, Indiana. I welcome comments; please email me, as I haven't turned on the "comments" feature of WordPress, after hearing horror stories of spam and obscenties. I'll research tools to make comments more secure and get them turned on soon.
My thanks to Jay Slavin of Belfast, Northern Ireland, and Jim Slavin of Phoenix, Arizona, for volunteering to act as co-administrators of the Slaven DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA. I'll still be guiding the project, but the addition of the co-administrators allows the project to continue should I need to take time away from the internet.
About this site
This is a private, noncommercial educational site for the free exchange of information. It is not associated with Ancestry.com, Rootsweb, MyFamily, or any commercial site. (That means no banner ads, no pop-up or pop-under windows, no unsolicited email!)
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.
