Can I Trust OneGreatFamily With My Genealogy?

We Built A Foundation of Trust at OneGreatFamily

Even with all the benefits an online genealogy service can provide, most researchers are still hesitant to subscribe because it is a decision filled with questions and uncertainty about trust and credibility. Trust is an important concept whenever you provide any information to any commercial entity. Trust is often more difficult to earn for companies that do online business. Some considerations include how your information will be used and the business model of the company receiving your information. At OneGreatFamily, we build a foundation of trust by working and researching together.

Online services must also be easy to use, produce fast results, save time and money, be convenient, and generate constant growth. At OneGreatFamily we make sure our subscribers and guests are getting what they expect from an online genealogy service by offering these benefits and more. We help you to uncover the information you need in the quickest and most economical way. OneGreatFamily is a service that was created to help genealogists get through their "brick walls" and move forward with the help of others from around the world. With OneGreatFamily you are able to see others who are researching your family lines, perform live collaboration with others, match and merge information, and verify and expand your family tree.

As guests and subscribers you should only expect the best from your online genealogy service. OneGreatFamily is one of the few success stories of online subscription services. With a growing subscription base, the company has created a solid foundation on which it will build for years to come. We hope that by using OneGreatFamily you have discovered the real value of genealogy, which is finding out about the people and places which made you who you are!

Moravian Church Records

by Lisa South, Certified Genealogist

When I first began my teaching career, I had reached the lesson on using church records as a genealogical source. I was covering many different denominations, what type of records they kept, where the repositories for those records were etc, when a student raised his hand. "My ancestors were Moravian, are you going to cover Moravian records?" he asked. I smiled confidently and said, "You bet! Next class."

I had never heard of the Moravians!! But I promise you I knew quite a bit about them before the class met again!

Moravia is a region in Czchecoslovakia and the Moravian Church is a protestant denomination formed in Bohemia in 1457. They were called "Unity of Brethren". In 1722 the church was reorganized and became known as the Moravian Church.

Moravians moved to Pennsylvania in the early 1740's. The Moravians later purchased 10,000 acres of land in North Carolina and more Moravians began immigrating to this area in 1753.

Moravian church records are very similar to the records kept by the Quakers, which we covered in last week’s issue of this newsletter. Excellent records are kept of birth, marriage and death.

There are two headquarters for the Moravian Church, one for the North and one for the South. The North is at the Moravian Historical Society in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and the South at The Moravian Church in North Carolina 224 S. Cherry St., Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
