Please note new e-mail address! I've tried to be accurate, but mistakes happen! Some of this material has been found on the Internet, especially the New England families. If I don't know the answer to your question, I'll try to head you in the right direction. Comments welcome!! Please note that my computer is a MAC and some of the text in the notes do not transfer correctly, such as apostrophes which turn into question marks. Sorry about that! If I figure out how to correct that, I will.

    So many relatives, so little time. Privacy concerns have caused me to use the LIVING feature for those who are still alive and kicking. I don't want my site used for evil.
