My name is Ray Malenfant
and I started this "pedigree" site.
This site was created using MyHeritage.com and is considered a "pedigree" site because it almost exclusively includes direct ancestors after the first generation and all (I hope!) descendants. Personal information on all living persons is considered private.
As of August 21, 2013, I (Ray), and as of October 12, 2013 Ellen are proud members of The General Society of Mayflower Descendants. We are both related to Thomas Rogers, but in very different paths. Needless to say, we am VERY pleased! It turns out that we had common ancestors 12 generations back. That is John, son of Thomas Rogers, and John's wife, Anna Churchman. Two of their daughters begin two paths down to both of us, Abigail down to Ray and Elizabeth down to Ellen.
Now we are on a quest to see if Ellen is the descendant of another Mayflower passenger. This research is not looking promising, but we shall see.
ON ANOTHER PROJECT...I have submitted what I believe is adequate proof of my lineage back to Peter Walker, Patriot soldier in the Revolutionary War, to the Sons of the American Revolution. I am waiting on what I hope is final approval.
HOWEVER...my "message of the day" is do not necessarily believe anything someone else says is a fact. Mis-facts can get carried along for many generations by many people! So, my real bottom line advice is to seriously DOUBT EVERYTHING!
As you can see, we are over 1200 people in the tree. I cannot imagine how large this site would be if all siblings were also included...I'm sure it would be well into the thousands. I have found MANY 6-10 children families in the "earlier days"!
