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, that is, very few siblings.  Information on all living persons, except Ellen and me, are considered private and not visible to anyone. 


As of 2013, both Ray and Ellen are proud members of The General Society of Mayflower Descendants.  We are both related to passenger Thomas Rogers (1571-1621) but via very different paths.  It turns out that we had common ancestors 12 generations back.  Those two common ancestors are John, son of Thomas Rogers, and John's wife, Anna Churchman.  They had four children and two of their daughters, Abigail and Elizabeth begin paths down to both of us.  Ray is a descendent of Abigail, and Ellen is a descendent of Elizabeth.  As a side note, John and Anna's son John married Elizabeth Pabodie, a direct descendant of John Alden, one of the most well known passengers on the Mayflower.


My submission to the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) as proof of my lineage back to Patriot Peter Walker (1747-1824) was approved on January 13, 2014, and I was officially inducted into the society on March 15th.  Needless to say, I am very pleased and rather proud!  This "proof" of ancestry did not turn out to be very difficult since fortunately Peter Walker was in my Mayflower path already.  Only a couple of small hurtles had to be jumped over for the SAR process.

I am now in the mode of searching out my Canadian side.  That is proving to be a real challenge.  More on that as I/if I progress. 

HOWEVER...my "message of the day" is do not trust 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"!
