Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
Our family is decended from some of the original European settlers of our great nation and Native Americans. Our roots can be traced to Scotland , England, Wales, and even the Roman Legions. We are descended from Richard Ingersoll who helped found Salem in 1629, Theopholus Eaton, John Davenport, John Brockett who designed New Haven Green, Andy Jackson, Israel Putnam and many others. The exploration of our history gives us a place in history and ensures that we do not forget where we came from. This also gives greater value and meaning to our lives and enriches our future generations. This effort will be a gift to them. I wish to offer heart felt thanks to all our family members who have and will contribute to this journey.
