Goan.Name - The Genealogy Website of Goa

Welcome to Goan.name, The Genealogy Website of Goa.

Here you'll find family trees of Goan and related families. Though we may not be able to trace all the way back to the days of St. Francis Xavier, we may be able to connect to those long lost living relatives. The idea behind this family tree project is to bring all of us together.

This will keep us updated about who our relatives are, who our forefathers were, who has been born, who has died and who got married. If you're a long lost 'living' relative and want to help, register for a user account or please contact us.

You may contribute to the expansion of this family tree by providing information like names, dates, histories or any interesting stories. Lets all keep connected!
