E-familytree.net is my personal genealogy hobby site.
The data contained here has been gathered through 20 years of genealogy. It contains
everyone I know who are connected to European Royalty or Nobility. Some small
part of it is my original research, but most of it has been shared with me.
It is important to understand:
This is SPECULATIVE DATA. Most of it is unverified. Use it for hints and pointers, but DO
YOUR OWN RESEARCH!
