FAMILY HISTORY and GENEALOGICAL
|a brief explanation of how things work, which you are urged to review on the Help page before you do anything else,|
|a Site Map, or table of contents, that gives you a concise overview of all the pages on this site, with direct links to each,|
|searchable extracts of infobases/books that I have privately produced for my immediate family (not for sale), and|
|searchable extracts of compiled genealogical data , including individual person records, descendants charts, pedigree charts, and ahnentafel charts.|
These extracts are recorded in their native format as Adobe Acrobat © .pdf files (called Portable Document Format ™, or PDF for short). More information about this file format and its use can be found on the Infobases/Books and Help pages. There are over 450 PDF files linked to the pages of this site and its companion sites (over 200 can be viewed on an iPhone or iPad). They contain approximately 30,000 pages and 3 GB of data.
This site contains this data only for the specific individuals and families that are color-coded OLIVE on the Surnames page.
At a companion site - http://www.gwdow.net - you will find similar extracts of infobases and compiled genealogical data for the specific individuals and families that are color-coded BLACK on the Surnames page.
Both sites include information about the research and document collection supporting these infobases and charts.
My research records contain a great deal of detailed information about hundreds of people who are still living. To protect the privacy of those who have been very generous in sharing information with me over the years, I have made every effort possible to exclude from this site all of this information, except for their names and the year of their birth. Where I lacked information about whether some people were still living, I have assumed they are for this purpose.
If you have questions about the information on in this site, or you are willing to share additional information about these specific surname lines, please contact:
