Additions & corrections welcome, especially now that autosomal DNA results allow me to correct and refine my work. I am not related to and am not a chief compiler of every family in this database. Although the majority of the labor reflected here is my own, I sometimes borrowed from others, especially on associates of my families whom I searched long ago. Where I have mistakenly not credited another researcher, I would appreciate a contact so that I can improve this.
