Progress in recruiting; a few lines still needed
Between active recruiting and responses to announcements, the Rockwell DNA project has gotten good response.We already have 7, maybe 8, volunteers from the William line--which isn't surprising, since William had the earliest start at producing progeny compared with other lines, so one would expect his line to be the most numerous.
We'd still like to get some representatives from a few lines to have maximum diversity in the pool, namely:
* The line of Thomas, son of John of Stamford, who married Sarah Rusco/Resco.
* Any Rockwell whose ancestors once used the surname Rockhold (prob. descending from Robert of Virginia and Maryland
* Any Rockwell who knows his ancestor immigrated more recently, as in my previous follow-up
Further volunteers are free to inquire, but if they have several generations in common with current volunteers I might ask if they'd consider waiting as "back-up" in case anyone in the current pool backs out.
Of course, we might also increase the pool over the current 30 targetted, if enough supporters of this project help with the cost.To donate, contact the RFF treasurer, Sam Rockwell, at firstname.lastname@example.org
