The Gene Pool was created while gathering genealogical data for use in the study 
of human genetics and disease. Compiling data for genetic research does not 
require the same type of documentation as traditional genealogical 
research. The genes themselves verify relationships and qualify or disqualify a 
person from a particular study. Citing the source of every genealogical fact 
in the electronic gene pool was deemed unnecessary and cost prohibitive by 
medical researchers. Millions of individual records were created from birth, marriage 
and death records; obituaries; probate records; books of remembrance; family 
histories; genealogies; family group sheets; pedigree charts; and other sources. 
The records collected that did not fit a specific study became the project's "by-
products" and were schedule to be discarded. After viewing the quality of the 
source material used to create the gene pool and despite the absence of cited 
documentation, the electronic rights to the data were purchased, rather than see it 

Extended Description:
Thousands of families are known to be present in the database, containing 20 million 
names in 5 million records. This data covers the entire U.S. for a wide expanse of 
years. At a minimum, each record contains an individual's name, date and place of 
birth, and the name of his or her father. A complete record will contain the following 
information for an individual: 
Name, Date and Place of Birth, Date and Place Married, Date and Place of Death, 
Name of Spouse, Name of Father, Name of Mother, 
Use this database as a finding tool, just as you would any other secondary source. 
When you find the name of an ancestor listed, confirm the facts in original sources, 
such as birth, marriage, and death records, church records, census enumerations, 
and probate records for the place where the even took place.
