Jan; I am also researching the BERKELEY/BERKLEY/BARKLEY/BARTLEY names (see my GenForum posts) to solve my main lines which are the BARTLETTs from Richmond Co to Fauquier Co to Harrison Co, and the BARKLEYs from Fauquier Co. I try to collect records to "prove" the relationships, but I also collect whatever I can find - it often points in the right direction.I outline my stuff in Word documents, so I can use whatever format I need to display the info in the best way to analyze it.I often type the same info several ways:I outline the families (indent for ea gen.); I type all records into chronological lists by county (so I can follow the time line in a specific place); I type all marriages and census info into spreadsheets, so I can sort by first or last names.I also lay out migration patterns on maps I've highlighted based on the old boundaries at the time... I'm very interested in your info around VA and DC.Specifically I'm looking for the parents of Jacob, Burgess, Johnson, Minor and John BARTLETT all of whom were in 1840 and 1850 Loudoun Co, VA census.I suspect they came from the BARTLETTs who were in Loudoun Co 1757 to early 1800s, but I can't make the link yet. The earlier BARTLETTs (Gardner, John, William, Daniel, Samuel and Thomas) were sons of William BARTLETT who left an 1804 Will in Loudoun Co.His name is often interchanged with BERKLEY, and some have him as the son of William BERKELEY who 2m Elizabeth HANCOCK (whom you've written about).I've traced Gar(d)ner BARTLETT to Frederick/Berkeley Co and then to Botetourt/Montgomery Co, VA where he left a will in 1811.Apparently Reuben's siblings went to Clark Co, KY. Do you have info on the William BERKELEY 1690-1761 who came from Westmoreland Co to Fairfax Co? The BARTLEY's I'm tracking were in Culpeper and Fluvanna Co, VA 1760 to early 1800s.The progenitor of that group was born a BARTLETT in Richmond Co, VA.
