Everton Partners with WorldVitalRecords.com to Make Pedigree Files and Family Group Sheets Available Online at WorldVitalRecords.com


Provo, UT, February 10, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Progenitors of the original contributors to the Everton pedigree files and family group collection, and the general public, will now have access at WorldVitalRecords.com to more than 150,000 pedigree files and family group sheets.

"We are pleased to house these records at WorldVitalRecords.com. Everton's family group sheets and pedigree files contain over 1,500,000 names, and a wealth of valuable family history research conducted over the past fifty years. This is original, interactive, community generated, genealogical research, and will be an extremely valuable addition to the WorldVitalRecords.com databases. Working with WorldVitalRecords.com has been very beneficial and rewarding for us," said Walter Fuller, President and Publisher, Everton Publishers.

In the very early 1980's, Everton Publishers was one of the few companies in the field that compiled genealogy data and made it available to the public. Between 1977 and 2000, they invited individuals from all over the world to submit family group sheets and pedigree files.

The Everton pedigree files and family group sheets contain more than 1.8 million records ranging from 1700 to 1930. These pedigree files and family group sheets are exclusive to WorldVitalRecords.com and are no longer available at Everton.

"This collection will serve as a foundation for our upcoming global pedigree chart product that will be released later this year," said David Lifferth, President, WorldVitalRecords.com. "These records and family group sheets add tremendous value to our site. There are informational tidbits that are intrinsically valuable on each page. The names are indexed, which allows for incredibly fast and easy searches."

The family group sheets contain records from all 50 states. Each record contains vital information such as birth, marriage, death, location, place, etc.

"The family group sheets are a significant contribution to our growing user generated content set. WorldVitalRecords.com will soon offer a service to allow subscribers to upload their own family history content, including pedigree files and family group sheets, to our site and merge them with existing pedigrees and collections," said Yvette Arts, Director, Content Acquisition, WorldVitalRecords.com.
