Preachers - Farmers - Soldiers
These are my Ancestral lines and research. I'm open to a discussion of the facts and my conclusions. In fact a good bit of my research was devoted to proving some of the most popular/glamorous lines were based on fraudulent research and are not included.
A number of these(my) lines have been registered by me with the Mayflower Society, the Swedish Colonial Society, and the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR), other lines have been submitted and are pending final approval. I mention this not to toot a horn, but to say my research in many cases has been validated by impartial evaluators who look for evidence.
That said, what I'm sharing is not a regurgitation of internet garbage or a rehash of GEDCOMs and Ancestry.com WFT files, nor is it a simple recitation of various published genealogies. I will make reference to them, but have independently verified the records I cite, and my conclusions may differ from what was published. Nor am I going to simply repeat what someone else, told someone else.
If you copy one of my pages wholesale, make a note of where it came from, and when (the information is likely to change) and while a public record cannot be copyrighted, my research is.
