Much data has been amassed that will be put on this web site. However, it does take some time to format the information into what is needed for web publishing. Please bear with us. New information is being added literally every day.

Should you have a desire for specific pieces of information, please email us at CustomerService@Carothers-Carruthers.com and we will address your desires as soon as possible. Although we have several thousand people in our genealogy database, we do not have information on every Carothers or Carruthers. However, we do have much information that is gathered but just not formatted for the web, yet. Additionally, we have stopped our genealogy charts at people born in early 1900, in order to protect against identity theft of anyone living. Let us know what your desires are, and we will let you know if we can help or not.

In order to try to keep you abreast of what new information has been added, we have placed an index of new material on this Home Page of the site. We believe that you will find genealogy, history, stories, travel aids, and merchandise that you will like. Please visit us often. Thank you.

Beware of Fraudulent Genealogy Web Sites

Beware of Fraudulent Genealogy Web Sites

We have recently become aware of three websites purporting to allow family history research: SearchYourGenealogy.com, Ancestry-search.com and Australian-Ancestry.com.  The sites claim to have “the largest online genealogical search tool” and promote themselves as the foremost resources for genealogy, but from what we can tell, these sites are nothing more than a series of web pages with links to other services.  These sites, in our opinion, are clearly fraudulent.  On each site, potential customers are lured to purchase under what we feel to be false, misleading and deceitful promotional material, and get little or no value out of money spent at the websites.  Blog and message board posts from the community confirm this opinion.  The people/companies behind the websites are buying very high level paid search results on Google and other sites.  In addition, they are using trademarks of well-known websites, including Ancestry.com and Genealogy.com, to get higher-than-normal natural search results.  It appears the site colors, fonts, and pictures on at least one site are designed to mislead people in to believing the site is related to Ancestry.com.  We want to encourage consumers to validate and verify the legitimacy of a website before providing credit card information or paying for services.
