good afternoon Jan,
I was browsing through the Alger/Greenfield connection, when I found your posting. I have been following this family for a long time. On August 24, 2001, I found Charles R Alger, who provided me with a long list of Alger family history, that I will gladly share with you, it begins with Andrew Alger (Algries) father of Jonathan Alger. Jonathan was the father of Roger Alger, born 1655 in Old Lyme, CT
