The research on these pages began as an attempt to document my own direct ancestry...but I got carried away with the sport of it and have followed out the ancestry of some of my in-laws and cousins as well.

The colored icons you see in the indexes and people pages indicate those individuals who fall in the direct ancestral line of the following family groups.
