Information Last Updated: 03 May 2009

Basic pedigree information for family Patriarchs is provided on this page. 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 for a particular family. Participation in the DNA Project is not a requirement for a listing on this page. Families participating in the DNA Project will have the associated Kit number listed with the ancestor of the participant. The hope is to eventually list all families on this page. Abbreviations used below include:

b = born
c = circa
d = died
m = married
m1 = first marriage
m2 = second marriage
r = resided

This page does not contain family members who are living or were born after 1901. Families are arranged alphabetically by the Patriarch's given name and then by Kit Number.
