We will also be occasionally be displaying reports on large numbers of descendants of selected individuals that start with the immigrant ancestor. These reports will be updated frequently as new lines are added. There will also be a complete name list for all individuals in the database.
The first such report is for Robert Royce of New London, Connecticut. As of 1 Oct 2000, there are over 20,000 individuals listed.
A second report has been added for the descendants of Moses Royce/Royse of The Highlands, NY. He had previously been considered to be the son of John and Sarah (Perigo) Royce of Windham, later Mansfield, CT. See the discussion in this report for the reasons he is no longer considered to be the same man as their son Moses.
A third report on the descendants of John Burton Royce or Rice of Massachusetts, b. 1792, has been added. It is hoped that placing this report on the Web will attract a researcher of this line who has traced his ancestry further and can tie him to one of the two Robert Royces or to a different immigrant ancestor.
