General Comment

This is a mirror site to the Main Chenoweth site. It uses the same database but the presentation is done in GED2HTML for those of you who prefer this format. The source database for the two sites is the same. There are some 110,000 names in the database and over 14,400 surnames. The file at this site has 119,684 names. It includes parents of spouses where known and a few connecting links on the spousal side. It does not include names from our unknown Chenoweth file. By using the GED2HTML format this site not only presents the data in a distinctly different view but has the advantage of denoting ancestors of spouses where known in the database and such additional information as full dates and places of birth, marriages and deaths where known in the database. Dates for living individuals have been excluded. Since the source database is maintained at the Chenoweth Main site any changes or corrections should be directed to that site in care of Jon Egge

Information regarding the Main Chenoweth Site

Though the same database is presented here the format is different. The main site presents a descendants outline rather than individual family group trees used here. Both views have their own advantages and disadvantages. The main site contains additional background information regarding the Chenoweth family in general as well as a sign in forum for Chenoweth descendants who wish to participate. The main site menu will link you to all available pages. You would do well to visit both presentations. Information presented here is not without errors. Moreover the data is in a constant state of revision. Information on disputes and controversies can be viewed at the background page at the main site.
