This site was originally set up in the late 90s and has welcomed more than 17,800 visitors in the period January 14, 1999 to April 14, 2017.

There are bound to be many Wardell lines that are in no way related. Some lines might be related but we just don't have the connection yet. The purpose of this site is to help each other with Wardell research and maybe find some of these missing links. I would be delighted to hear from fellow Wardell researchers!
