Genealogies - There are July 2012 updates to the main genealogies here. These have been done using the LeisterPro Reunion software on the Mac. Some major database cross linking issues occurred with the data files in Generations, so much manual checking has been done in the database. This also provided the opportunity to add much data. There likely are still instances of database errors remaining in the updated file, therefore the old versions are still provided on this site. If you encounter instances where you believe there is an error, please contact Mike Hobart and be as specific as you can about the error you found (so it may be located and checked). Many people have shared data and made other contributions. Particular thanks go to Chris Duggan who provided the information that Schamaun Meyer (1729-1808) was born at Jenaz rather than the earlier speculative link to St. Antonien. He also pointed out a surname transcription error. Similar thanks also go to Patty Wilkowski who made a crucial discovery for my LeDuc ancestry, letting us make the leap from Vermont into the Quebec records. These pages are oriented towards the ancestry from certain couples and their spouses. I have followed the descents from many of the ancestors found here. I have a very large amount of information about these collateral descendants. I also have much information about the descendants of these couples to the present day, but have not published it to the web out of privacy considerations. It is available for sharing with relatives, of course.
