My Notes

I have about 85,000 documented files so there are a lot of them that aren't posted and that I have not mentioned here on these web pages. And also all of my Revolutionary War soldiers aren't mentioned here. There are a few more. But most of these family lines that I have listed above I have back to the immigrant ancestor. 

When you take the family information that I have posted here and claim it for your own, please be kind enough to remember where you received it and who did the research.
