Patriarch Page


We will list all Families by Earliest Ancestor and email* of Line Leader or person who posted the pedigree. We hope that eventually all families will be listed on this page. We also hope to locate descendants of each family and to arrange their participation in the DNA project. (Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for listing on this page, but we will indicate families who have a man representing them in the DNA Project by their T-number at the bottom of the line from which they descend.)

The male lines will soon be posted in Tree-format as well - stay tuned!

Please note that a pedigree does not necessarily include marriage information, any death information, or any details on the wife. It is intended to allow a researcher to identify a family of interest. It is NOT intended to provide all of the information that is known on this family. Often, something special is listed on the first generation, as usually little is known about him.
