IN THE NEWS
FRANK SLAVIN, PUGLIST
Welcome to the Slaven Genealogy Exchange! Our purpose is to be a central location to collect and exchange information for Slaven, Slevin, Slavin, Slavey, and other surname variations. As a registered one-name study, the scope of this exchange is world wide. We hope there's something here for the beginning genealogist, the old hand, and the merely curious!

A BOXER'S BALDNESS CURE
What does a less successful boxer, brother of the famed Frank "Paddy" Slavin do at age 65 and too old for the ring? He markets a baldness cure. Thanks to Frank Slavin descendant Nancy Newham for sharing.
CIVIL WAR LETTERS
Two more Civil War letters are being shared through this website, one from Medal of Honor winner Samuel Slavens, and one from his brother Reuben. Thanks to Linda Thompson for sharing. If you have old letters, Civil War or not, old photos, clippings, or other items you'd like to share with others through this webites, drop me an email!
Slaven Y-DNA Project members - if you changed email addresses, please update your email at FamilyTreeDNA (if that's where you tested) and let me know as well. I sent a mass email about autosomal DNA testing and about ten email addresses were bad. If you've forgotten your FTDNA login information, I can probably help with that.
If you have taken an autosomal DNA test, like the AncestryDNA test at Ancestry (they reportedly sold 2.7 million of them during the Christmas 2017 season!), FamilyFinder at FamilyTreeDNA, the Ancestry test at 23andMe, or the DNA test at MyHeritage, please consider sharing your information with the Registry. The idea is that your unknown cousins may be considering taking a test, and if they find your entry here it could encourage them to test, and test at the same company! (While cross-company matching can be done by uploading results to GEDmatch, not everyone does so.
