A 501(c)(3) U.S. Internal Revenue Service
tax exempt organization
Welcome. The Chandler Family Association is dedicated to increasing knowledge of the heritage and genealogy of Chandlers and Chandler descendants worldwide. We invite you to browse our website and contact us with your questions and comments.
We have about 700 members in 45 U.S. states plus Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Guernsey, Botswana, New Zealand, South Africa, and France. Anyone with an interest in Chandler matters anywhere, any time, is welcome to join us. Membership details can be found on the Membership page.
|We are particularly interested in making contact with Chandlers who live in England or who have traced their ancestors to England, because England is the ancestral home of almost all Chandlers in the world, at least as far back as the 13th Century when hereditary surnames first came into use in the general population. Please see how we can help you with your Chandler research. ||
The association has an award-winning newsletter, published three times annually, and our website was recently awarded a "Highly Commended" designation by the Federation of Family History Societies. The CFA Genealogy Panel is of great help to members and others researching their family trees. The Panel's work is supported by the CFA Lineages Database as well as records from the Chandler One-Name Study.
The CFA co-sponsors the very successful Chandler DNA Project, which has so far identified 100 genetically-distinct Chandler families. This website contains the stories of some of those genetic Chandler families, with more to be added. These stories are very interesting reading and may be of substantial help to researchers.

The 2018 tour will visit a broad mix of Chandler historical sites and English history sites. The tour will cover about 50% of the same route as followed in 2016 but add diversions to places with strong Chandler connections that were missed last time or which have just been found. CFA UK vice president Errol Chandler and his wife Susan have planned the itinerary and will travel with the group.
Note to UK members We would welcome any opportunity to have you meet the touring group as it travels in Hampshire, Wiltshire and Somerset, or while we are in Oxford and London. For dates and timings contact Errol Chandler on 01934 744 940 until May 12, or on 07875 649 422 once the tour has started.
