Not all data has been verified, continues to be a work in progress and is considered best available information at this time. Please bear in mind that there may be discrepancies. I find errors almost every week. Not all of these families are mine, some collateral families are included. Most sources are included in the "Notes". Please feel free to contact me with any notes, additions, or errors. I try to update both websites weekly. I'm always willing to share since so many have shared with me.
