James Grier on Rootsweb WorldConnect
I have removed
my old database from this website that contained
If you have a legitimate reason to contact living descendants,
|I have researched
my families' roots since about 1960, but only discovered the Greer line
about 1985. A few years later, I found that my Greer line connected
with my wife's Greer line, making us sixth cousins, twice removed.
In 1995, we began publishing The Greer Internation Newsletter, which
was very large family newsletter. We ceased publication in 2000,
as our time was demanded in other areas of our lives. Now, the information
pertaining to the descendants of Sir James Grier is online at Rootsweb
and Ancestry. Other lines noted in TGIN are noted included
in this website at this time.
I am constantly adding
and correcting information in my and my wife's Greer genealogical data,
as we are both Greer descendants. I upload an updated database about
every week, so check back often but new information. I hope you find
this website of some interest and value. Many Greer descendants have
contributed information to my files over the years, and are so noted in
an individual's notes. Feel free to use any information found on
this website for your personal genealogy use, but it is not to be used
for any commercial use without permission from me, as it is copyrighted.
Please keep all notes and sources of information with this genealogy.

me, as I would very much like to add any additional descendants and
information to this family. I will be glad to include any corrects
or additions, so this data can be as accurate and complete as possible.
