A large portion of the information contained in our database
was compiled from individual researchers.
It has not been verified by anyone in this organization and should never be used as a
primary source of information.
It should only be used as a guide for further research.
The combined database presented on this web site, contains an Internet version
of the Parsons Family Association's (PFA) Master Database; containing no living individuals.
The master database contains information from two excellent reference books (THE PARSONS FAMILY
by Gerald J. Parsons, 2002, and PARSONS FAMILY by Henry Parsons, Vol. 1 1912 and Vol. 2 1920),
family lines of PFA members, many independent researchers, and the authors own family history.
From the home page menu, you have direct access to the family group sheets of our
immigrant ancestors and their parents. From each family group sheet you can go to
their spouse, parent, or child by just clicking on them. For your convenience, there
is a short pedigree chart at the bottom of each file that can be used to
move back to a particular individual (up to 5 generations).
From the SURNAME INDEX, on the main menu, the first two menus are alphabetical
index ranges (i.e. aa-cd, ce-em, en-gp). The third menu is an alphabetical
list of names that will take you to a specific family group sheet. For
your convenience, at the end of each file there are two hot links: HOME
goes back to the beginning home page, and INDEX takes you back
to the initial index page. From the Surname Index, you can use the EMAIL
feature to send messages directly to the author.
At present, the Parsons Family Association-Western Region's Master Database
does NOT contain any family
history data that was submitted to our parent organization (PFA) back east.
If you would like your material included in the master database,
please send your material to the author of this web page, listed below.
Please submit your data in GEDCOM format, either on a floppy disk (snail-mail
address on request) or as an e-mail attachment. If you do not have this
capability, you can send copies of your pedigree and family group sheets to the
author by U.S. Mail. His snail-mail address will be supplied to you on request.
We are aware that many errors have been incorporated into the Parsons Family
Association-Western Region's Master Database.
Errors originate from many sources: erroneous information
collected from oral histories, inaccurate publications, family histories
of researchers, typos, and other unreliable resources. If at all possible,
data should be gathered from primary sources (i.e. birth certificates,
baptismal records, marriage licenses, death certificates, and internment
Our main goal is to compile as much data as possible, even with errors,
from our Parsons Family Association members or anyone else researching
the Parsons surname. We are,
without restrictions, disseminating the collective information to anyone
researching the Parsons surname, free of charge.
For legal reasons, under the Privacy Act, we will NOT
list or give out any information concerning living individuals. If you
discover living individuals listed in the database, please contact the
web page administrator as soon as possible and they will be deleted from
the published database.
If you discover any errors, omissions, or would like to add your database
