Hello and Welcome

Toler CrestThis website serves as my primary genealogy database, and I welcome colloboration with others.  The 2,877 individuals, 933 families, and 625 surnames recorded on this website comprise the extended Towler/Toler/Toller and allied Families from which I descend and have been able to document.  These family branches have deep roots in early Kentucky, Indiana, and West Virginia, by way of very early colonial Virginia.

This family tree is a work in progress and as such is in a near-constant state of flux and was last updated on May 13, 2024.  The collection of family data found on this website is by no means complete (will it ever be? ), and is almost guaranteed to contain a few errors.  It is my hope that you can offer corrections and/or wish to contribute additional information, pictures, or documentation.

This website contains information compiled through the meticulous and time-consuming efforts of many relatives and friends as well as other participating family researchers, and include contributions by several distant ''cousins''.  To date this website contains 66 different source's across 10 different Repositories (and always looking to add more). 

The tree and experience is enhanced by 663 multimedia items adding to the user experience and the quality of the website.  I am striving to have the as much of the data sourced and annotated as I can.  New photos and census transcriptions are added regularly. I always aim to have genealogy of high quality recorded on this site.

The earliest recorded event is the Birth of John Cox in 1473.  The most recent event was a Death in 2024.

Family members can contact me to get full access to the database, which includes living individuals. I do ask for some information on your lineage to guard against the "data harvesters" and other unpleseant folk. If you wish to contribute to the database, adding or correcting information, please let me know. I welcome collaboration.

NOTE:  Registration to view deceased ancestors on this site is not necessary. You need only register if you plan to participate by contributing information and materials via our online databases.

If you have any comments or feedback please contact Ian Towler.


Domain Transfer...potential down time
Thursday, January 16, 2020 2:14 PM

Just wanted put a little note out there, I am in the process of transferring this domain (familytree.itowler.com) to a new Registrar.  During the transfer, the site may experience some down time.


I hope that the down time is little to none, but in the next 10 days or so, if you are not able to see the site, please be patient, as it is likely a result of the domain transfer.  All transfer activities should be complete by 01/26/2020.
