Eller Family Association

We seek to draw all Ellers and allied families into a cooperative effort.

Schloss Eller (Eller Castle) Near Dusseldorf

The Castle of Eller in the town of Eller, Germany,was first mentioned in 1309. The Castle was knocked down in 1826, except for the tower and substituted by a new Castle.

It is not clear if the castle was built by, or ever lived in, by any Eller family members. Perhaps it was named after the small town of Eller near Dusseldorf.

The last known Eller living in the area was Drosten Christian Ludwig Von Eller, who was the last to carry the baronetcy title. He evidently did not have any children.

Welcome!

The purpose of the Eller Family Association is to draw all Ellers, regardless of their particular family line, and allied families into a cooperative effort. The EFA has already demonstrated that this approach is the quickest and most efficient mechanism for sharing family history and genealogical information.

There's A Lot Here

This site has a lot of information for anyone researching the Eller family.

Database
First, we have about 45,000 names in our Eller database. Because we keep each contributed family tree seperate, there are duplications. For example, immigrant Christian Eller is in both the Christian Eller tree and in the Jacob Eller, Jr. tree. To search for a name, use the "Search People" option under the "Find" tab.

"The Chronicles"
We have nearly 30 years of our quarterly Eller Family Association publication online and searchable by keyword. To review these publications, use the "Chronicles" tab under the "EFA Info" tab.

EFA Research
Members of the Association have published many research projects. We have many of them collected under "EFA Research" on the "EFA Info" tab.

About the Eller Family Association

The EFA exists to assist all Eller and associated family lines worldwide to: discover and preserve our historical past, report current events and ongoing contributions, develop and expand current family ties, provide ongoing biennial meetings to summarize accomplishments and to socialize and provide inspired direction as we focus on the future.

Biennial Eller Family Association Conference

The Eller Family Association held its 14th Biennial Conference in Williamsburg, Virginia, in July 2015. The next conference is scheduled for July 2017 in Salisbury, NC. The area around Salisbury is home to many Eller families, most of whom can trace their family back to Jacob, Christian and Melchoir Eller.

About This Website

The Eller Family Association has been on the Web for a dozen years at www.Eller.org. So, why would we move to this site at www.ellerfamilyassociation.com? We wanted to see if this program from TNG could be adapeted to work for a family history group like the EFA. So, this site is an experiment. If it works well, and so far it has, we anticipate moving it's functions to eller.org.

We'd love your feedback, especially from members of the Eller Family Association. Contact the webmaster at harv@harveypower.com.

We're still working on aspects of the program like refining the different trees via Gedcom, determining how to make some aspects of the site open only to EFA Members and the simple process of moving nearly 30 years of our publications to the new format.

Looking For Gedcoms

We are searching for Gedcom files for the searchable database. We currently have about 48,000 names, which includes many other family lines and, as we keep submitted gedcoms separate by researcher, some duplicates.

We would love to be able to additional trees for any of the major Eller lines..

Please contact the webmaster if you can help.
