Odds and Ends

Ann Cushman provides a marvelous resource of odds and ends and tidbits and stuff from the unusual to the amusing. In between, you might find a clue or a new source of information to aid your research.


From working on a Mayflower lineage for someone:

When using the Five Generation/Silver Books they may actually have a 6th and 7th generation in them for some lines. It sometimes took until those later generations to verify the 5th.

When doing a person’s line we only had to submit proof for the last 4 or 5 lines. They accept the first 5-7 generations which have already been documented in the Silver Book series. This speeds up the application process.
