About the Project

The Powell Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Powell name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Powell name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Powell's), by time period (18th Century Powell's), or by topic (Powell DNA, Powell Occupations, Powell Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

I added this Powell, to name study. Belongs to Virginia, Kentucky Group.



Hi! I just added the Powell sticker to several profiles of my ancestors (e.g., Maurice Eldred Powell (abt.1844-1914). I noticed that if I click on the link in the sticker, it takes me to a page that says this study doesn't exist yet. Just wanted to let someone know :) I'm looking forward to adding more profiles as I have a LOT of Powells in my family, especially in Tennessee and North Carolina. The Powell lines are difficult to untangle, so hopefully this project can expand to help all of us who are researching Powells!
