Welcome to Manly Families. We are so passionate about our families and their history, so we need to share this enthusiasm with other geni enthusiasts. Once you get the bug, there is no stopping - you just have to keep on searching, but it is so much better when you can share your triumphs and tragedies with someone who understands and shares your passion.

Researching families can be an emotional journey as you discover long kept secrets or simply read old letters between parents and children in the formal style of days gone by.

We love to hear the stories of what you found, about whom, and where you got the coveted information. Your experiences are always worthwhile to pass onto others following similar journeys. More importantly the family information you uncover is a wonderful legacy to leave your descendants.

Technology has certainly made searching easier, with more prolific results, but we need to be careful to sift through all information and double check the sources. You would be surprised by small transcription errors and the effects they can have.

Do you enjoy a good detective story? Have you ever wanted to become a detective, but were worried about the danger? Well now you can have your cake and eat it too, by becoming a family detective, with all the thrills and emotions of finding your quarry without the inherent dangers. Why not tell us your detective story?
