Clearly many of us have individually made significant contributions to Cree family history over the last decades but none more so than Mike Spathaky. The Cree One-Name Study (http://www.cree.name) that he created is a monumental achievement and thousands of those around the world with a Cree ancestry will have consulted it at one time or another. It is difficult to comprehend how many months or perhaps years have gone into…Continue

Hello, My wife and I bought the old Cree homestead in Jefferson Township this past year. We are looking for more info., Photos and stories of the home and the family that lived here. We have collected a lot of info. and were giving a book of the history of the home by the previous owners. Any info. would be helpful!
Gill and Patty
P.S. We will be posting photos of the house over the next few weeks.
I notice that there is no death date on Line 23b for Jane Cree. She died on 26 September 1918 and is buried in the same grave as her husband George (1851-1932) and her son Arthur (1891-1914) in Belfast City Cemetery - Grave No J1 167.
Jane's age at death was given as 65 which would give her a birth date around 1853.
Their last address is given as Suffolk, Dunmurry, Belfast.
I should just like to take this opportunity to welcome all of those who have recently joined the Cree Family History Network. Over the last few years significant progress has been made in helping individuals trace their own Cree ancestry and the Cree.name website must be one of the most comprehensive family history resources in existence. The male Cree who have undertaken the DNA test have allowed us to prove that many previously unconnected Cree lines are indeed directly related and many…Continue

We have recently had to suspend a very new member of the Cree Family History Network because it would appear that they may have been involved in Spamming other members. If you received any unwanted messages our apologies. Hopefully it was contained before too many members were contacted (10th July 2013). I believe that you will not be contacted again by that person since their membership has now been blocked. We try to be very careful when vetting new applications,

During my visit to Ireland last month I managed to copy all the Cree entries from the birth and marriage indexes at the General Register Office, Belfast (GRONI), which took me almost two full 6-hour days. I have now typed these into spreadsheets which I have uploaded to the Datasets section of the Cree Surname web site at http://www.cree.name/indexes/ire.htm alongside the Cree marriages which I extracted last year. This will…Continue
