I would encourage all researchers not to take everything here as being correct. We all make mistakes. While
researching, I have found mistakes made by other researchers that had been blindly accepted by many
descendants and passed on a fact to the point of being included in genealogical society publications!
Likewise, it is possible that I may have made errors in my own research which will only be uncovered if others
make their own investigations into records and resources. Thank You.
Important Notice: If you find the information on this website useful and would like to use it in your own
research, then please go ahead. It is here for all to enjoy - BUT - I ask that you don't copy it word for word and
paste it onto your own site or page, that's called Plagiarism.
