Welcome to the Soddy-Daisy-Roots Project!

What is the Soddy-Daisy-Roots Project?

The Soddy-Daisy-Roots Project is a non-commerical project which is financed solely by its initiators. No information is bought or sold. Anyone may use the website free of charge. Contributors give their information to the Soddy-Daisy-Roots project with the understanding that they will not be paid and that their information will not be sold, but displayed free of charge on the Internet.

What is the is goal of the Soddy-Daisy-Roots Project?

Our goal is to document the genealogies of all the families in the Soddy-Daisy area and connect them to each other from the earliest ancestors who resided in this area of Hamilton County Tennessee to the youngest descendants. The genealogical data in the online database is restricted to the ancestor who came to and settled in this area of Hamilton County, his or her parents and all of his or her descendants. The Soddy-Daisy-Roots project does not attempt to publish entire family genealogies, but restricts its scope to Soddy-Daisy settlers and their numerous descendants.

How can I contribute information about my family to the project?

Anyone who wishes to submit corrections or amendments to the data in the online database or submit data for inclusion is welcome to participate in the project. You become a contributor if you submit data to the project and you may, if you so wish, be listed as such on the contributors' page. The best and easiest way to submit corrections and amendments is by using the "Suggest" tab on an individual's or family's page.

Who's behind the Soddy-Daisy-Roots Project?

The Soddy-Daisy-Roots Project was initiated by Recs and Ursula Jenkins of Emden, Germany. As the administrators of the project, it is their responsibity to see that the genealogical data contributed to the project is vetted, inputted into the offline database and then uploaded to the online database. In addition, they are responsible for the overall co-ordination of the project and the general maintenance of the website.
