Below are some links I have used in my research of the Canevit family, as well as allied families. These are certainly not all inclusive of the genealogy sites on the web (you can visit Cyndi's list for something like that).

If you would like to add a link or know of a good site that is related somehow to the research of the Canevit family (to include Singleton, Pollitt, and many others), please feel free to e-mail me at
