This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

The main focus of this Horney Project is to determine the relationships of Horneys on the Eastern Coast of the United States with an emphasis on the State of Maryland, but other Horneys and their relationships are welcome, too.

Task List

1) Add tags to the Horney's of Maryland prior to the Year 1900

2) Collect information on Horney's for the ONS Horney home page
