S&SMFB - FAMILY HISTORY BASED ON GENEALOGICAL RECORDS
In order to have an authenticated pedigree, each generation
must show proven family connections. The way to achieve this is to start with
ones self and work backwards proving each generation through primary and
secondary genealogical records or sources, by name of line carrier & spouse,
their date of birth & location, their date of marriage & location, their
children’s names, birth date & location and their date of death & location.
Except for Certified Birth, Marriage, and Death Certificates, usually more that one record covering an event is required.
The following three heritage societies have approved my pedigrees' and I am a
life member of each.
2000, Order of the Crown of Charlemagne in the United States of America, meetings held in Washington, DC. My paternal lineage through Margery Frost, wife of Nathaniel Staple, grandson of Peter Staple Jr., and kindred families. http://www.charlemagne.org/
2001, The General Society of Mayflower Descendants, Plymouth, MA. Both my paternal and maternal lineages through kindred families to signers' of the Mayflower compact.
