This database derives from a genealogical repository of insufficient encyclopedic interest to be an integral part of Wikipedia.
The site is multi-faceted: It captures details on individuals—both historically significant people and everyday people usually not listed in encyclopedias, histories, or even "people's histories"—and provides such other information as:
- the backgrounds and meanings of names
- documentation for family trees and quick links to recorded ancestors, siblings, and descendants

This site aspires to be truly global, with active contributors and information from cultures and regions world-wide.
Please feel free to contribute to this site, no matter how small or large your input: It all helps towards the creation of a great site.
