Index of Notables

I make misteaks. My apologies in advance for those times when new information comes to light that causes me to change anything that you may see here today, especially if it results in you losing a notable cousin from your family history.

I am always looking for new notables and new, more accurate sources of information. If you have documented information that you would like to share (and be credited with on my website), by all means please contact me at jcamp@cas.org. If an individual on any chart does not have a reference, you are very welcome to view this persons inclusion with suspicion.
