The goal of this project is to help as many Galloways as possible, discover and explore their ancestry, as well as their existing extended family members. One of the many rewards is understanding the relationship of our family and the history of the world as we know it.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Jere Galloway.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Discovering the first documented person with the surname Galloway.
  • Connecting with as many existing persons that share the same surname.
  • Adding historical events that Galloways were directly involved in or indirectly effected by.

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!

I am appealing to all Galloways to communicate and share our heritage with each other. You and your descendants deserve to know how special we are and why we should be proud to be a Galloway!

My mom began studying our roots when I was about eight yrs old. We were a military family, traveling all over the U.S. She did it "pre-internet", exchanging letters with relatives and strangers, visiting libraries, court houses, graveyards, museums etc. She wrote hundreds of pages of notes and diagrams that she compiled for a book she later had printed for us. I did not truly appreciate what she had accomplished until I was in my mid forties, broke, feeling very depressed and pitiful following a failed business venture. I called her, sobbing, explaining how I had nothing of value to leave my two young sons. She stopped me abruptly and explained that I was not a failure, that in fact, I had already given them something priceless. I gave each one their "Galloway" name and bloodline!
