Welcome. The Chandler Family Association is dedicated to increasing knowledge of the heritage and genealogy of Chandlers and Chandler descendants worldwide. We invite you to browse our website and contact us with your questions and comments.
We have about 600 members in 46 U.S. states plus Australia, Canada, England, Wales, Scotland, Guernsey, Botswana, New Zealand, South Africa, Costa Rica and Taiwan. Anyone with an interest in Chandler matters anywhere, anytime, is welcome to join us. Membership details can be found on the Membership page.
The association has an award-winning newsletter, published three times annually, and our website was recently awarded a “Highly Commended” designation by the Federation of Family History Societies. The CFA Genealogy Panel is of great help to members and others researching their family trees. The Panel’s work is supported by the CFA Lineages Database as well as records from the Chandler One-Name Study.
The CFA co-sponsors the very successful Chandler DNA Project, which has so far identified more than 100 genetically-distinct Chandler families. This website contains the stories of some of those genetic Chandler families, with more to be added. These stories are very interesting reading and may be of substantial help to researchers.

CFA granted 501(c)(3) federal tax-exempt status
We are pleased to announce that on September 2, 2017, the Chandler Family Association was granted tax-exempt status as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization by the United States Internal Revenue Service. This means that CFA is not required to pay federal taxes and also that charitable contributions to CFA may be tax deductible depending upon the donor’s tax situation. Donors should consult their tax advisors regarding their particular circumstances. Our organization was granted this special tax status because of the educational benefits it provides to the community.
