What does the 'Turkel Tribe' database include?
The 'Turkel Tribe' database includes basic information about persons who are family related to a person named Turkel, Terkel, Tirkel etc.
Basic information includes: full name, DOB, marriage, death, children and any story or personal detail that is willingly provided by a first degree family member.
A "relevant" family relationship to a Turkel clan is considered when a person is a descendant of Turkel folk at least three generations, or related by marriage with a Turkel folk at least two "horizontal" links away (ex. nephew or niece by marriage).
Unlimited number of generations are considered for ancestors of spouses.
Whenever willingly provided by close family members, we would consider more distant family relationships.
Adoptions and Half Brothersconnection with adoptions are included on these trees as well as half brothers if the names are willingly provided.

Anyone interested may provide family information if related to the Turkels.
Our policy regarding persons who are not named Turkel, is to include anyone who is related even three generations vertically (away from a Turkel folk) and at least two horizontal links away.
However, such relationships could not be technically displayed on our "enigma" pages, but can be displayed on the name index, Dynamic Turkel Family Trees
or the password protected site TribalPages.
Lastly, we have no proof yet that all the Turkels are family related, and this is The Sting. . .
(see the picture at the bottom of that page)

A word of caution about Errors:
There may be a duplication of an individual's name if there is an insufficient evidence showing the same person had two or more, exact or similar names.
It could be that we had improperly merged different individulas having the same name and thus consider them as one person.
Corrective actions have been taken, but we can't guarantee that all such improper merges are corrected by now.
Spelling is initially considered as written within the oldest reference. However, we have already observed that a name of the same person could have been written differently within different records and occasionally we amend the spelling to reflect the latest known record about an individual.
