Slaton-Slatton-Slayden Family Project
The Slaton-Slatton-Slayden Family Project (SSSFP), or Slaton Name Study in WikiTree language, is a network of family historians and genealogists who share a common interest in the individuals possessing the surname and its variants. We also have a DNA Project as a genetic extension of "traditional" genealogy.
We maintain two hubs (sites) on SPOKT.com for the exchange of ideas, images, files, and record interpretation: 1) Descendants of Arthur & Rachel Slayden, a Virginia USA-based family, and 2) Slaton Slatton Slayden Family Project for everyone else, worldwide. These site are by-invitation. Membership to both SPOKT sites is allowed for any one person, but prospective members are "interviewed" by Wes Miller or Clinton Slayton for an evaluation before invitations are issued. Collections of our research files (trees) with citations were once publicly accessible and clearly formatted on RootsWeb WorldConnect until its failure. Some of that material is still extant there, but the notes are garbled and additions and corrections have not been updateble since 2017. In some cases, those posted files were uploaded at WikiTree without permission and without the full citations justifying some individual Profiles.
The primary objective of the SSSFP is to delineate the carriers of Slaton surname variants. Our presence on WikiTree is intended to provide a genealogically honest and rigorous presentation of the current state of Slaton research. This process involves constructing evidence-based profiles for all carriers of Slaton surname variants. The initial entries for some Profiles may contain "data dumps" from genealogy software to be re-formatted to a more acceptable Wikitree presentation. "Family stories" are not ignored, but clearly marked as anecdotal when used as a basis for a Profile. We do not accept uncited trees as genuine "sources," but will strive to bolster or clearly denote such "citations" as questionable, depending on the presence or absence of supporting records.
The following is a list of prospective project ideas to be established on WikiTree:
- Descendants of Arthur and Rachel Slayden, (this couple found ca. 1730 in New Kent and after 1741, Goochland counties, Virginia, nicknamed A&R.)
- Carolina Project (proven or conjectured descendants of men found in 1771 North Carolina and later, South Carolina, nicknamed Carolina men.)
- YDNA Project
- Northern Slayton Project
- Mystery Lines
- Military Men
- Slaton Surname Confounders
