The McMillan page was recently updated (06/26/99) and I have more data I may be adding to my reports as soon as I have chance to sit down and update it. Please NOTE CHANGES TO THE NOTES FOR John McMillan, possible parents for John and home town in Scotland.

At the request of a fellow Robinett researcher I decided to change to Robinett Report. I used a file that was passed onto to me by Jerry W. Robinett. He saw one of my many requests out on the internet and responded with a rather extensive file on the Robinett Family Tree. This file was compiled over many, many years (see the note of explanation under Allen Robinett) of research by Jerry W. Robinett's uncle. I left all info intact as it was passed to me and thank Jerry for sharing it with me.

I have also recently corrected some info on the Wells Family Report. (06/26/99)

Also have added to the Koontz Family report (06/26/99).
