Over 25 years if research and collaboration.
Recent trip (Jun 2009) to KY & VA has numerous updates to the Vicars/Vickers lines

Over 61,820 persons entered as of Last update.
3.25 MILLION text data entries for these individuals.

The sources for the data are correlated to the ref. numbers and listed at the END of the Gen. Reports. Please note the difference between primary sources (official records, such as court records etc.) and secondary sources such as information given by a person, even a relative, that is not the first person.
All secondary sources from individuals without other primary sources should be validated...even some primary sources (death cert. etc...have been found to be incorrect). I appreciate all contributions, particularly those that can list official records to assist others in their search, validations and updates.
Please feel free to contribute to these lines. I give credit to YOU the researcher/contributor. Assist others in their research by giving the source/location of your data. ie. interviews with whom; court records; death, birth, marriage records - give location official records such as County & State where you can. This will help others to know where to dig farther and add to the research. Again, all source data is listed at the end of the gen-reports.
