Through the years many families of Rollers have been developed, some have lasted while others have faded. With the passing years it has been more and more difficult to find reliable information on some of the families. In fact, we have seen history being rewritten at an alarming rate. To help document some of the families we’ve set aside space to help those seeking information on them.
Obviously, not all families are covered and at this late date it is impossible to obtain a clear and accurate picture on their history. As times pass these older breeders are either placed on a pedestal or vilified with the truth usually somewhere in the middle.
One of the most difficult topics that almost always comes up is how “pure” the family is or was. Almost all breeders have side projects and some of their offspring may or may not find their way into the family. If it makes the family better, then who cares and yet there are those who waste a lot of time debating the purity of families.
Below are links to the families that have been documented.
