1999 - 2018 : 19 years of Maltese Genealogy free to one and all.

If you have any queries, ensure you have shown your links to the genealogy you question for a reply. We have the rights to not publish all references and links to our works for various reasons.


16-11-2018: The Website is in the middle of integration of its vast data and changes will hopefully occur in the early months of 2019. Till then, please save your emails for updates, new work or corrections. The website will remain the same until the new changes are online and fully functioning.

18-09-2018: Various changes will occur on maltagenealogy.com including deletion of several areas such as SMOM, Russian Maltese Nobility, Announcements and pages will move in due course to a new URL. New pages of genealogy will not have links to corresponding pages, unless it is feeding off a main page. This is to help bring the website into a manageable site dealing with genealogy and related pages. The process has already started and will continue over 2019. Updates will notified. The aim now is to brings many pages into large family trees and reduce the size of the site. Eventually a New GENEALOGY LIST will be updated closer to completion of this transitition. 

Maltagenealogy.com has for nearly 20 years grown so massively out of control and changes have occured over the last five years to stream line the site. The next changes will hopefully bring it to a new dimension on the anniversary of its 20th year online.  

When sending an email for queries, please ensure to show your lineage. To reduce the amount of emails, responses will be to those who have sent family trees to search and add online, additions and corrections. 

Finally, the material online is always up for correction and updates. We are trying to ensure crediablity with references and sources where possible.
