Tyree Time Line

Genealogy Page

Below is our Tyree family genealogy. It represents decades of work by numerous Tyree family genealogists. In many cases, names were added only after a trip was made to a grave yard or a county courthouse. Sometimes money had to be spent in order to purchase copies of wills, birth certificates or marriage licenses. However, we are convinced that only by free exchange of genealogical information will we be able to further expand our knowledge. The following information is posted to the world wide web in this spirit.

For those searching for the European origin of the American Tyrees, Tiree Island in Scotland (See also under Tyree Name) is an intriguing spot, however Carl Tyree Felker's essay on Tyrees in Scotland leads us more to the northeast of Scotland. If you're planning a trip to Scotland, you'll want to read Tyree Braveheart Pilgrimage.

Request for information ...


"As you [may] know, there is no profit or fame in genealogy work; and advances in family lines are made only when members of a family voluntarily make their personal information available to the group. We would like to know more about you and your Tyrees. Currently we are plowing through the U. S. Census from 1850-on in an effort to match small Tyree units to larger groups. Your information -- particularly if any is first hand -- could be very helpful."
