The Royal Wedding and Genealogy

Many members of GeneaBloggers have become caught up in the royal wedding fever and the same goes for GeneaBloggers. We’ve created a special episode of GeneaBloggers Radio tomorrow night, April 29, 2011 focusing on British genealogy – join in the fun at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/geneabloggers/2011/04/30/british-genealogy–resources-and-how-to-get-started.

And our good friends at Geni.com have come up with this great infographic outlining some of the genealogy involved with the Royal Wedding that takes place tomorrow! Check out more at the Geni.com blog at http://www.geni.com/blog/.

Create your family tree on Geni for free, and connect to the World Family Tree to find out if you are related to the Royal Family.

Disclosure statement: I have received a complimentary Pro membership and conference swag (t-shirts, etc.) from Geni.com. In addition, I contribute to a weekly podcast on various genealogy topics at the Geni.com blog for which I receive no compensation.  To review the other material connections I have with genealogy vendors, please see Disclosure Statements.

  1. I’m afraid the Geni.com graphic is full of errors. There is only one Prince of Wales. Prince William is “Prince William of Wales” and Prince Harry is “Prince Henry of Wales”. There is no such title as “Princess of York”. The daughters of the Duke of York are “Princess Beatrice of York” and “Princess Eugenie of York”. Prince Philip is the Duke of Edinburgh and his name is spelled with only one “l”.

    For the official family tree, giving the correct styles and titles, see: http://www.royal.gov.uk/pdf/Windsor%20family%20tree.pdf
