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.
We WERE pretty confident that both Ellen and I are direct decendants of two different passengers on the 1620 voyage of the Mayflower, but for the first submissions, that is not to be. In the process of using Find-A-Grave information for our both sides, I stumbled upon another ancestor on my side that was the grand-daughter of a different Mayflower passenger, Thomas Rogers. I am in the final steps to get the proof needed by the Mayflower Society, and everything is looking good. I am very optimistic that this lineage is correct. After I get this family history "sewed up", I will move over to family history, or perhaps better called rumors, on Ellen's side which says that she is related to another Mayflower passenger.
My message of the day, however, is a warning to not necessarily believe what someone else says is fact. In the case of both our sides in the first submissions, I WAS too trusting of the information derived from MyHeritage trees. Mis-facts can get carried along for many generations by many people! So, my real bottom line advice is to seriously DOUBT EVERYTHING!
But anyway, as you can see, we are well over 1100 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"!
