to my genealogy web site. Hopefully you will find something that will
contribute to your own family genealogy research. I have been researching
my family line for a decade or more and feel as though I have just begun.
My database, which you can access below contains 3,568 individuals, and
primary families that I am researching are Trueloves/Truloves,
Tutors/Tudors, Weathers, Browns who lived in north western Harnett County,
NC. The Arenas and Bacarellas came from Borgetto, Sicily to NYC in the
early 1900s, then to Hopewell, NJ.
have a collection of Truelove databases sent to me by other researchers
that contain some duplication, but also have many families that I do not
have in my database. My intent is to consolidate all of these databases
into one database to simplify searches, and place them into a separate set
of web pages from my family group and allow you to search both databases
from this web page.
based HTML genealogy data base below takes some getting use to, to effectively navigate.
there is quite a bit of information available to you, and I would very much appreciate
your comments, corrections, and suggestions. The
database in a work in progress, so you will find typos, incorrect
spelling, and some family member information that needs correcting as
well. Many people have contributed additional pieces of information, and
helped me in improving the accuracy of the overall database.
genealogy information resides on Family Origins' database, which was used
to generates the web pages you will be accessing. Therefore I have no
control of how the pages are presented.
the "hot links" below (shown

is actually Perry Eugene Truelove in database), which will take you to the
beginning of the web page (html file) containing records a series of
names, but not directly to my name. As you go into each web page you
simply page back/forth till you find the person you are looking for. Once
you understand/master how the information is organized, your ability to
find individuals quickly will greatly increase.

Double Click on the Download HOT LINK you will get the GEDCOM file loaded
into either a TEXT or WordPad file--whatever you have filetype you have

browser will ask you to make an assignment. At this point you want to
assign GEDCOM files to ".TXT". Save the downloaded file to your desk top, then go into your genealogy software and
import the GEDCOM file by pointing to the file you just saved. It will
have the name and filetype of "GENETRUELOVE.GEDCOM."
