Have just sent my Willett family pedigree.  My uncle (Willett) has agreed to have the DNA test, which we will have done in the next month.  Our Willetts were obviously loyalists, as they ended up in Canada soon after the revolution.  Family legend links our family to Thomas Willett of Rhode Island (b. 1605)first appointed mayor of the newly named New York City after Styvessant (sp?), but I am sceptical because of a huge amount of missing years in the 18th century.  Perhaps DNA will tell the tale.  I will be contact for our family.

I am working on a genealogy project with my girlfriend; we have identified 798 ancestors and relatives in historical records, and have written little biographies for several of those. We have an automatic list of persons at < >, and an incomplete pedigree tree at < >.

(The wiki is otherwise private, but let me know if you'd like some information on a listed person.)

Thank you all for the submission of your pedigrees!!

Please, everyone, use the genealogy standard date format of:  DD Mon YYYY
As an example, tomorrow is:  06 May 2010

The reason for this is that it leaves no room for confusion regarding which number is the month, and which the day of the month. In some cultures, tomorrow's date is written:  05/06/2010 
and in others as:  06/05/2010
