We invite you to become an active part of this web site and

  • Share your pedigree to your Clay line and your Clay brick wall for inclusion in our master database of Clay Trees and Branches stored in our The Next Generation website
  • Learn how to analyze your DNA and extend your Clay tree
  • Become acquainted with cousins though our history, genealogy and DNA
  • Together we can break through brick walls, merge branches and extend family trees.

As an organization we meet in person and virtually to share research and visit historical Clay sites, cemeteries, research facilities and libraries.
