Patriarch Page


By correlating test results and paternal pedigrees, each family can identify their genetic heritage and related families.
**Please note that a pedigree does not include any 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. 
  • Each Family will be listed here, by earliest known ancestor.
  • Each listing will include a Line Leader (Researcher).
