This database is a collection of client files that professional researchers have worked on
over the past 35 years. It also contains information from our clients'
own data files and submissions from other families that may not be fully documented.
To determine if the information is documented look for "Sources" buttons on the Family
Group Record. In some cases all of the sources for the family will appear
under the father's sources.
Before relying on the validity of any records, please examine the sources and
determine for yourself if they prove the information to your satisfaction.
