30 April 2020 Tree Update

I just redid the Ping Family Tree files with a lot of updated information. The tree now contains in excess of 19.000 descendants of John Ping, plus additional information on some of the individuals who were in the last update (better dates, spouses, and a lot more links to additional resources such ...

First Tree Update of 2020

I've been trying to post an update to the tree online since last month, but I keep finding more people to add to the database. This update puts the tree over 18,400 individuals who descend from John Ping; to the best of my knowledge and belief, that makes what's on this site the largest and most com...

Redesign - Y or N?

Everyone, What would you think of a change in the "flow" of the site, where you'd first get a regular static Web page, and the forum (what you're looking at now) would be accessible via a link off the home page? It's a little more traditional look, and it would make it possible to put somewhat more ...

Re: Well? What do you think about this site?

There are some areas that I think could be improved, but off the top of my head I can't come up with a good way to do it. One big one would be a group editable family tree. There's a package available that could be installed called "webtrees" that's meant for that very purpose. The administration is...

Re: Why was Bolin Green Pings middle name, Green?

Green, Greenup, and Greenberry were somewhat popular boy's names in the early to middle 1800s. My own direct male line includes a man named Greenup Raney (1846-1912) from Pulaski County, KY who married John and Lydia Ping's great granddaughter Martha Pointer; he usually went by "Green". My tree data...

Terry Lee Ping

I'm going to do something a little different here. Terry is, of course, related to our common ancestor John Ping. Oddly enough, his paternal grandmother shares a common ancestor with my mother. I'll go ahead and document both here. John Ping (1740-1823) & Lydia Bradley - William Ping (1772-1850) & M...

Welcome to the site!
Over in the Queries section, I just traced a tree for another member who also descends from John Ping's grandson William; as far as I know, she's your nearest relative on here (the Facebook group may have someone closer to you).

This is a test.

When you're in Post or Edit, below the text box where you type you'll see two or three tabs. Use "Attachment" to upload a photo, as so:
