SCOPE: This particular family history project follows the family of L. Pauline BLOOD (b. 11 Jul 1908, d. 6 Jan 2001). As of December 2007 research of this line covers fourteen generations and goes back to William WHITE who was one of the original passengers on the Mayflower. The AKELEY PROJECT TREE shows the relationships involved. Click on the DESCENDANTS link to review the information available so far. Please inform the undersigned if there are corrections to be made.

CENSUS AREA: For the census research this project presently includes Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, and Monroe counties in New York state. Please click on the U.S.CENSUS link to review anything that is covered there for this area. Downloading and arranging this information is still in progress. For actual research on line there is a subscription fee to access the census site at

FAMILY SOURCES: Information from family largely comes from previous work on the Akeley family line and the hard copy of The Akeley Family Records that we have that was published in 1985 - Decorah, Iowa: The Anundsen Publishing Company.

FAMILY SPECIALS: Much of The Akeley Family Records, minus the pictures, is available here. Please click on the AKELEY RECORDS link to review that information.

WORLD CONNECT PROJECT: There are many databases that include our specific line of Akeleys. Choosing the best ones for reference and also finding databases about the BLOOD family is still ongoing.

FamilySearch.ORG: This search engine at this website will be of great help in the research yet to come now that the basic information has been entered from The Akeley Family Records.

FURTHER DEVELOPMENT: This project will be further developed as information becomes available either from family or other reliable sources.
