The East Families of the Southeast USA
As you look thru most of the East biographies, there will be codes after the names [in braces]. Those are ID num-bers, in order to keep the many people with same names from being confused with others.
Also, the letters and numbers in (parentheses) following a biography are source codes. To see where the informa-tion came from, go to the Source Code file. If you see an asterisk just above the listed children, that means I have not yet placed them alphabetically. It also usually means I don't have much info for them.
searching for a person in alphabetical order, you may know his full name,
while I do not; if you cannot find your person alphabetically, try searching
for his name without the middle name or initial, or try searching by the
middle name used as the first name. Example: If you are looking for William
C Pinckney East, I may have him as William P East, or as William East,
or as Pink East.
If you see a name in Red Text, that is an indication that there is a link for additional information. Go back to this Home Page and see the list of Links below. Usually links are bits of info about in-laws, a gravestone picture, a marriage record, or a short history of the area, etc. And if you see a name in Blue Text at the start of a biography, that person's info was recently updated. Most pictures of people are from 1930 or before, and more will be added as time and availability permit.
