Ian Pidgeon's Genealogy Project
for Pidgeon, Pidgen, Pigeon, etc

The Pidgeon Post is a family history newsletter issued roughly every 6 to 9 months. It contains news and views on the family history of not only Pidgeon families but also of those which use the alternative spellings of Pidgen or Pigeon. It is intended to complement the genealogy pages of this web site, and will add flesh to the bones of the family trees. Perhaps the stories will be more meaningful if read in conjunction with the trees on these pages.
Although I have written most of the articles, a few were written or supplied by others, and I welcome stories about Pidgeon families, which can be included in future issues of the Pidgeon Post.
Several of the articles deal with the Pidgeon DNA Project. Some explain the technical aspects of the DNA tests, and others provide an insight into the results. Below is a list of articles already published.
