MEMBER GENEALOGIES

How to Use This Index

First, please have patience. This page will be under construction constantly. There are only a handful of genealogies here now, and even many months from now, when we have uploaded the bulk of them, there will only be a hundred or two. It is not intended to be a super-list of all patriots. Such a thing wouldn't be possible, anyway. It's simply a listing of genealogies of our Riverside Chapter members and friends. Turning them into HTML pages is a long and tedious process.

Secondly, find the colony of your interest in the Table of Colonies and click on it to go to that colonys section - and yes, you're right, Connecticut isn't on the table - that's because it's the first colony immediately after the table. Scroll down four more lines to find it. If the name of the Colony is not underlined, that means there's no information on that page yet - sorry, check back later!

Thirdly, look for the name of the Patriot Ancestor listed alphabetically in
BOLD RED TYPE, ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. Under that name, the chapter member will be listed in number one (1.) with his name underlined. Thereafter, the first time an ancestor surname appears in the line, it is in Bold Red Type, First Letter Capitalized.

Fourth
, if you think you've found a cousin, each member name is a link that will take you to our Contact Page, where you may e-mail our contact members with a message to be passed on to the possible cousin. We DO NOT guarantee a reply or give out addresses or phone numbers of our members, we only pass along messages to them.

Finally, the
LARGE colony names (not the ones in the table of colonies) are links to the RootsWeb site for that present-day state, so that you may continue your research if you're unsuccessful here.
