SHARING WITH OTHERS

People Picture


This site is intended to be a resource for those researching WILBANKS and WILLBANKS family histories and genealogy. For simplicity all references to the family are made as WILBANKS, assuming this to include those WILLBANKS with two "L's" as well.


Publicizing your lineage can be beneficial. It allows other researchers to determine if there is a common connection to their lines and fosters sharing of information.

This page includes various methods available to share your family history and research with others. It is not a recommendation or endorsement of any of them. Please thoroughly investigate the individual policies and procedures of each before making a decision on where to place your records.

Be aware that some services require membership and therefore limit the exposure of your data to others. Those who find the data of interest may be charged for release of the submitter's name. Also note that unless specifically covered in your agreement, your data could be resold or used in profit-making enterprises. Read the fine print!
