Family Group Records


"Chappies" have been submitting family group records to the Chapman association and before that, the Chapman Chatter effort, since the very early 1980s.  We share some of those with you here.  Some may have been reworked by CFA in which case the CFA logo will appear on it.  If you have questions about these or have some you would like to add go to CONTACTS and let us know. Be on the lookout for additions.



Here you will find genealogies of Chapman ancestors. These have come from various sources. Information following the name inclueds the CFA reference, number of generations (gen) and the number of descendants (des) in this version.

Listed below are several lists of Chapman marriages by state. Each of the files is arranged in the same format and order (or soon will be). These lists are derived from the Chapman Family Association (CFA) data base and it is in a constant state of change with new data being added almost daily. The marriage lists on this site will be updated from time to time by being completely replaced with a later version. If a particular marriage list is linked from one of the CFA Quarterly Contents Lists it may or may not be the same version published. Most likely it will be later.

This data is not complete nor do we claim that it is highly accurate. It is all we have for the applicable state at the time of the list. In some cases one or more elements is missing. What we have is what has been submitted to the association over the years or what has been accumulated from a variety of sources. In some obvious cases we have identified records with an asterisk (*) to denote that it tends to contradict or nearly duplicate some other record. We decided it best not to publish our abbreviated and somewhat cryptic source notations. If you feel you absolutely must have our source reference it is yours for the asking via email, but please do identify yourself. Please take the data for what it is worth and use it as a clue to finding the primary record you need. That will likely be the officials at the county listed unless there are related comments at the beginning of the state file.

If you can add marriages to this list and improve on any of the data listed please let us hear from you. You can do that via email or you can send hard mail to CFA Data Central, POB 1586, Florissant, MO 63031-1586. In either case please identify yourself.

Thank you.
