Title: Information received from Jackie Foster Weiss June 2006
Jackie wrote in part:
... I am a direct descendant of James Foster, brother to John Foster (1757-1837) who is cited in your listing. John's second wife was Mary Smith Kelsey whose sister, Elizabeth, married James Foster. (In fact yet a third sister, Sarah, married Thomas Foster, brother to John and James.) I have been able to devote much more time to genealogy after retiring a few years ago. I have been assisted by a first cousin who has been gathering data for about 40 years. I started a family data base that contains about 1500 names at present. I constantly find more relatives to include in that listing. The John Fosters were very prolific and it has been quite enjoyable getting to know these people if only through names and dates.
.... My cousin Nan has been gathering family data since the early 1960's. She is the inspiration as well as the genius in this pursuit. Because she is 11 years older than I am, she had the chance to interview many relatives who had been born in the 1870's or even earlier and to glean family history directly from them

Title: Twig, Tree & Treasure A Genealogical Sojourn
Bianchi's Twig, Tree & Treasure A Genealogical Sojourn
by Linda & Mike Bianchi, email: email@example.com
The project started in earnest during the 1960's and has continued sporadically from then on with help by various family members and a lot of friends. Oral and documented family information was complied by Linda Bianchi nee Hooper and Barbara Hooper nee Crosby, later augmented with additions by Lee and Cathy nee Hooper Galloway. A special Thank You to Michele Yvonne Hayward Tate and her family and to Amy Holtgrewe Haertling and her family, for their generous help. The project continues to be updated and expanded by Linda and Mike Bianchi.
Not all of the source data is listed simply because the data is a compilation from many different sources, most which were family oral history records. Some data will have individuals or groups listed as the source of information. While these persons should be credited and are thanked for making significant contributions to this work, they should by no means be construed as being the only source for that particular data or as the only person to have worked on that line.
