I am currently researching the following family lines:
HOWARD --- Bridgewater, MA
ALDEN --- Mayflower Descendants
MULLENS --- Mayflower Descendants
PABODIE --- Mayflower Descendants
STANDISH -- Mayflower Descendants
DELANO --- Mayflower Decsendants;Franklin Delano Roosevelt
RIZUN --- HELP! Canadian Descent
ADAMS --- Second and Fourth Presidents of the U.S.
CHASE --- Salmon Portland Chase,Chief Justice
The two main families that I would like information on are the HOWARDS and the RIZUNS.
My father-in-law is Ronald Nikolas Rizun, Sr. and hails from Alberta Canada circa 1938. His mothers maiden name is HANCHOURUK, also from Canada.
The HOWARDS stem from John and James HOWARD, born about 1616 in England. They came to America about 1640; James left for Bermuda? and John became one of the first settlers in West Parish, Bridgewater, MA. John maried Martha Hayward abt 1645 and became an inkeeper about 1670.
Any information would be greatly appreciated and I am willing to share what I have. Currently my family tree has over 17,000 names.
