In 1999, the Atlas family tree had 400 members and had just established itself as an online presence. Now, the family tree has over 3,000 members and the website has blossomed into several endeavors. This is due to the continual research and communicative efforts that are made to grow the Atlas family tree and it’s resources.
These efforts and resources are:
- Receiving updates from family members via interviews, documents they provide, email, etc.
- Internet research, such as through Ancestry.Com, FamilySearch, public records, Google, etc.
- Research trips to locations that family members have inhabited.
- Adding new media, such as a blog, a YouTube channel and using social media such as Facebook which can be used to locate family members, keep in contact or to share information
This 500+ page family history book has been a work in progress for over 35 years and features birth, death, marriage, and more information along with photos and documents for more than 3,000 people. This commemorative edition of family history was published to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Atlas Family Genealogy Research Project, the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and family participation in the United States Civil Rights Movement.
