Those of you who are working on your lines back to your 1600s American
Ancestors will find the1600s Ancestors Data Base to be of great help.
My recent postings to the Data Base has taken it to over 26,500 Ancestors
who have descendants living today.
I have also added several National Societies who have proven many
of these Ancestors. Also at this time a few new respected Reference
works that contain thousands of sources including some of the early
colonists who have Royal Blood lines.
All the entries are coded to indicate to which reference work or which
National Society has at least one of their proven lines. Several of the
National Societies have over 20 different lines from a single Ancestor.
When you enter the 1600s Ancestor Data Base be sure to look at the top
of each data page for the link that takes you to the "Data Base Information
Here you will find the codes and references listed and how to use them. This
is must reading to understand the Data Base.
We are constantly updating the Data Base with additional Ancestors added
as time permits.
You will find the 1600s Ancestor Data Base at:
Everyone has FREE access to all our web site and the reports contained there.
Enjoy and Happy Hunting

3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.

6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
