This page is a little history behind the above names.We are also looking for the NOVA SCOTIA,IRELAND and ENGLAND connection. This report would not exist without the help of our new found cousins, Family Tree, Cousin Pat H.,who's web site connected our CHELSEY side back to the 1600's and Mass-Doc com.(Jeff Simonson, who did the research and document retrieval). You know how it is, one name here and one name there, and you have a Family Tree. Thanks to all, my sister will be going World Wide soon!
Because of limited space I will soon be putting a Report on my Home Page. Here is just a sample of what we have, and who we are looking for.
