We will list all Families by Earliest Ancestor and the names of living descendants who wish to be listed. We hope that eventually all families will be listed on this page. We also hope to locate descendants of each family and to arrange for 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 his kit number in red.)

Please note that a pedigree does not include many details about the wife. We are allowing some data beyond birth dates and locations, however, if they help identify the family. The data are intended to allow a researcher to identify a family of interest, NOT to provide all of the information that is known about a family. Often, something special is listed on the first known ancestor, as usually little is known about him.
