Real Genealogy - Not Just Links

Welcome to "The KAYE Files Genealogy Archives" web site! If you are a KAY/E/S researcher (or a KEY/E/S researcher -- see "News Flash" below!) and have data files to share, please contribute your information using the links below! If you have records that don't fit into the "Queries" category, e-mail with a brief description of the information you'd like to have added to the site, and we'll send instructions for submitting it.


Recent exciting developments in DNA (Y-chromosome) testing have shown a genetic link between the KAY/E and KEY families, showing conclusively that these branches of the family, which originated in West Yorkshire and Lancashire, England, are related!

The KAY Family Association (UK) has just announced the launch of its new website, where the comprehensive results of the KAY/E - KEY DNA study can be found.

It has been brought to my attention that many of the pages you can link to from here have those annoying "pop-up" ads. You can combat this increasingly prevalent advertising ploy by using a pop-up stopper program. There are lots to choose from, but my favorite is from PanicWare, called "Pop-Up Stopper Free" -- you can download it quickly and easily, it's FREE, and it really works!
