The world-wide center for research on the Whiting surname

Since you and I share ancestors, should we not work together to find and document them? - Carvel Whiting

Whiting-GLOBAL is the world-wide gathering place for collaboration and sharing of genealogical information related to the Whiting surname.

Our goal is to: 1) Identify, 2) Document, and 3) Link into families everyone in the world with the Whiting surname(*) and their descendants. Current research efforts are focused on people born in England before 1900.

(*)including variants

Technology and sharing. Whiting-GLOBAL was formed to take advantage of collaborative technologies. Instead of working independently, we work together — rapidly increasing what can be accomplished. And because we have documentation standards, this research will not need to be repeated by the next generation. We invite you to join our collaborative effort. Contact us
