Nationwide Researcher Gatherings

THE GATHERING - On April 10, 1999, in Gadsden, Alabama, a small group of Self Family researchers representing various branches of the family, met for the second time to socialize and to discuss the Self family. Attending this event were 37 Self family researchers.

On April 08 , 2000, in Gadsden, Alabama, a larger group (67) of Self Researchers met. This was an event to remember, with Self / Selph researchers coming from 9 states, and many came for 3 days.

On April 28th, 2001, in Westmoreland County, we held "2001 - A Self Odyssey". The Greatest gathering yet. Papers flew as volumes of data was exchanged between participants. So many meeting co-researchers for the first time.

April 27, 2002, Gadsden, AL. will be the site of SELF-2002, the 5th National Gathering of Self / Selph family researchers. BE THERE !!!!


Email List Programs - Keep informed of all the happenings in the Self family. Join one or several of the email listing programs available at Self Family Newsletter. "Self-Family" is for researchers in the US in a national effort to solve the family lineage; a group of 600+. For those who only wish a monthly notice, there is the A-list of nearly 300 subscribers. "CaveCountrySelfs" - is a group of 80 researchers with a southcentral kentucky connection. A list program of nearly 50 exists for those Selfs with an immediate UK connection. Contact the Newsletter to be placed on one of these lists. Be informed, keep up to date. Contact Dan

More to come - 11/19/2001. Date of page revision. For information on the SELF FAMILY NEWSLETTER contact or at alternate address SelfFamily@bigfoot. com. This site is the original Self family webpage that Dan started with, but as you can see, it's not the greatest. Then along came Jami Hamilton, our famous webmissy, in 1998 who built the present website, the Official website of the Self family of the world. We will do the best to keep this site updated, but there is no way this even puts a scratch into all the information that is available thru the Newsletter / site.

At the bottom of the page we have posted a few links to sites that may benefit you in your search of your Self Family. Notice the wording - only a few, for we are just now starting to place these. Please bear with us, as this section too, will grow. For the ultimate Self Family webpage, go to

Self Family Newsletter saturday night CHAT ROOMS, since early 98. Do you want to learn and discuss your Self Family in one convenient stop? Jami Hamilton is your host of a twice monthly programme that starts off with a few minutes of chit-chat, followed by introductions, then an educational presentation on research, records, and the like, and ending with general talk on the various Self Family branches and problems. I believe quite a few people have made great strides in their research by attending these sessions. You've never been to a room that is so informative and full of friendly people as this one here. Contact the newsletter that you wish to be put on the thursday night notification list for the chat room reminders.

Note: This Table of Contents page is but months into the making. No ads. No Glitz. We don't do your tree - you must PROVE it. Just some general information to help you in your search for your most elusive Self ancestors. Stop in again. Queries follow.

In 1980 a group of Self Family researchers seeking the means to work together to solve our family, seek out new data, and preserve our history and heritage banded together as the Self Family Newsletter. In 1982, our first edition came out, with the membership as the editors and staff, and such is still the same today. Our quarterly publication is meant to serve the die-hard Self family researcher who wants to PROVE his/her line. "Tree Squeezers" are most welcome to seek out our help, who knows, you might become addicted like us. Our members have free and unlimited queries and all are invited to be as active as they wish. We do anything related to the SELF family - family reunion notices, old stories, family photos, obituaries, good news and bad news, we print it all.

Who are all the KNOWN SELF FAMILY RESEARCHERS? This link will take you to all known persons who have expressed an interest in researching, proving, and preserving records of the Self family. Persons who will share data with other researchers and to work in a unified effort. Work and fellowship with REAL family descendants.

From the Self Family Newsletters inside cover:

The Self Family Newsletter is a quarterly created for the purpose of gathering, compiling, publishing, and the permanent preservation of the historical and genealogical records of the Self Family of America. This is a non-profit adventure into research of the surname Self, Selfe, Selph, and any variations.

Material for publication is solicited from the membership. All original material for publication should be fully documented and will be reviewed and accepted by the editors, who reserve the right to edit as deemed necessary, and to place priorities on materials presented. Proven errors or mistakes, factual or opinion, are gladly retracted, in the next available issue.

Queries are unlimited in size or appearance. These queries are the life of your newsletter. Please feel free to submit your charts, group sheets, wills, deeds, census records, stories, and data in general, of your Self family.

Disclaimer: The Self Family Newsletter formed in 1982, is NOT associated with any other groups or individuals, publications or websites, formed in recent years with VERY similiar names to ours. Although imitation is supposedly a form of flattery - we're not flattered in the slightest. We're still the original source of quality information on the Self / Selph family.

The indexing of over 60,000 names from the Self Family Newsletter is currently (Aug. 8, 2002) underway by dedicated, hard working, sharing researchers of the Self family. Do your part - SHARE the wealth of information !!! Send your data to the Self Family newsletter for publication and storage in National record depositories.
