Our Lost Relations

Some of you have been wondering who the families are on pages 363 to 400 of W.T.T.A. As I said on page 363, these are families which I hadn't been able to connect into the family tree prior to the book's publication deadline. The earliest known progenitor of each family is listed on page 363, followed by the page number where that family starts.

If anyone out there knows the connections of any of the people on page 363, please let me know. I'm sure there are others who are as interested as I am in the identity of these relatives.

    Ancestor References

    While looking through W.T.T.A., a few of you have no doubt found that some family lines don't reference to the previous ancestor. Some don't, but most of them do. For example, look at family 2339. Note that Nancy K. Whisenand is referenced to her father "Fredrick Earl Jr., family 1797". To see what I mean about missing references, take the following example: Family 2340, Marcia Lou Hall. Marcia doesn't have her ancestor referenced after her name. This is the way the computer software generated the book.

    This inconsistency has bothered some people. Unfortunately these omissions are to numerous to list in this news letter so I'm going to just tell you how to deal with this when you're looking through the book. Many of you have probably already discovered this method. When you want to find the parents of someone, when the ancestor isn't referenced after the name, as in the example of Marcia Lou Hall, you should first look up the name in the index. The index shows the page numbers where a reference to that person can be found. For example: The index shows that Marcia Lou Hall can be found on pages 292 and 344. You would go to page 292 to find her listed in her father's family 1799.
