Just as a start, I have posted a PDF file of an indented descendancy chart of the first fifteen (15) generations (as I see them) of John Wyndham born about 1415 and died 1475 .He was the first owner of Felbrigg Hall, England.This PDF file is 35 pages.You can just view it or you can download it or print it or you can save it to a file on your own computer.You may also ‘comment’ on it (corrections, etc) on Windham Family Genealogy Blog.
You will notice that this indented descendancy chart is a ‘Windham paper-trail’ chart.It is NOT a biological (DNA) only, chart.Therefore this 15 generation chart DOES include, both, the ‘Green Group’ and the ‘Khaki Group’ because both these groups DO have a Windham ‘paper-trail’ lineage back to Felbrigg Hall, even thought these two groups are biologically (DNA) unrelated to each other.
I predict that about 80% of you will find a recognizable recent ancestor on this 15 generation indented descendancy chart.Hopefully, the other 20% of you can be included in a future updated chart.
We’re just getting started on Windham Family Genealogy Blog, so check back regularly for many more new upcoming postings.Or........better, yet, email me requesting that you to be set-up for automatic notifications of all new postings.
