The Jeanette (Woodworth ) Behan

Newsletter Collection
Back to Resource Page Home Page

Jeanette enjoyed publishing the "The Woodworth Family Newsletter", but ceased publication when she found that she had terminal cancer.  She then devoted her energy to publishing and making available the combined works of hers and others for Woodworth genealogists.  Her complete collection of newsletters is provided here.

These newsletters are not to be confused with her published book, Volune 1, and unpublished manuscripts.  About 80% is general interest articles, and the rest would be of genealogy interest.  Much of the direct interest information is duplicated in her published book, VOL I.     There are some unplaced Woodworth lines, and some more recent material that would be "generations 7 and 8" that is not available in VOL I.    "Unplaced lines" are those lines not connected back to Walter, b abt 1612.

These newsletters are approved for distribution by Jim Behan, who owns the intellectual properties of Jeanette Behan, deceased.

Of interest to descendants of the "William b 1776" of Lunenburg, NS, is a series of articles on his line found in newsletters  #2, pages 10 thru 13;  #3, pages 13 thru 17; and #4, pages 16 thru 18.  Only recently has William's line been determined to (probably) be from Shropshire, England,  (thanks to Keith Berry, our man in Edmonton, AB), and William's DNA is not related to Walter b abt 1612.

NOTE TO AOLers:  
1.  Do a "CONTOL REFRESH" to force your AOL proxy server to retrieve the latest web pages.  While a simple "REFRESH" forces your own computer to send out for a fresh page, it does not force AOL to do the same.  You must do a CONTROL refresh.  AOL keeps old, obsolete  web pages on it's proxy server unless you do a "CONTROL REFRESH".   (This quirk of AOL drives AOLers nuts trying to figure out what is wrong.)
2.  If the graphics (JPGs) look fuzzy to read, your graphics are being severely compressed by AOL for faster downloading.  Go into your settings, then internet web options, and change to "Never compress graphics".   If, later, you find the downloading too slow, go back and reset to "compress" again. 

NOTE TO INTERNET EXPLORER 6 & 7 USERS.
If Internet Explorer keeps shrinking the JPG down to fit the window, causing the JPG to be too small to read, go to "Tools > Internet options > Advanced" and under "Multimedia", remove the check mark from "Enable Automatic Image Resizing".  (That is the default setting for Internet Explorer 6 & 7, and it presents very serious problems for internet users, as the picture in many cases is resized too small to be useable.)
