    Note:  Unfortunately, I am unable to provide research services for specific Taft ancestors.  I have
    set up this page in an effort to provide links and data to assist other Taft researchers.  The links
    under "Taft Family On-Line Resources" above provides a good place to post Taft queries as well
    as join the Taft family e-mail list.  I will continue to add new content to this page as it becomes
    available.  Please send me any links, vital records, etc. to you think would be useful to other
    Taft researchers and I will add them to the page.
