This genealogy is organized as a series of text pages starting with a Pedigree chart of many of my ancestors and many individuals in related families, showing six "boxes" with their genetic parents and grandparents, if known. Since everyone has two distinct genetic parents and almost everyone has four distinct genetic grandparents, the general shape of each person's pedigree is the same. If any of the parents or grandparents are unknown, then the chart will show an empty "box" and may thus denote an end of an ancestral line.
An interested viewer/reader may select (or click on) any of the parents or grandparents listed in the pedigree boxes, and a new pedigree chart will appear that features the selected person, and shows their pedigree. Thus, one can travel back in time along any family line as far as ancestors are known. The colors of the boxes are blue for men and pink for women.
Following each person's pedigree chart, there is a section showing that persons spouse or spouses and a list of children by each marriage. Each name that has an active link will bring up a page for the person whose name is so linked. Thus, one can travel forward in time by following the links of children. One can also jump to an in-law family by following the links through spouses. The intent is to show each individual in the context of those to whom they were closest, i.e., their parents and grandparents; children and grand children.
If available, a brief biography of the person, who is the subject of the page, follows after the list of children.
Names on the pedigree charts are posted without prefix titles , such as "Lt.", "Dr.", "Rev.", "Capt.", or "Gov."; and without suffix award notations, such as "M.A.", "Ph.D", or "F.R.S." They are the posted with the names that each person was given when they were born or baptised. The surname is capitalized and placed below the given names. The year of birth and death, if known, is placed below the name.
In the notes and links below the pedigree charts, more detail is provided, where known, about the person who is the subject of the page. Standard genealogical notation is used: "b." for "Born" followed by a date and place of birth, "bap." for "Baptised"; "d." for "Died",; "bur." for "Buried", "m." for "married"; "m1." for first marriage, "m2." for second marriage, etc. Some dates are preceded with a "c" [for "circa", which means the date shown may not be exact, but nearly the correct date. Also the prefixes "bef." and "aft." are used to indicate "before and "after", respectively
Prefix and suffix titles are identified, and detailed dates and locations for births, marriages, and death are provided if known. Nicknames are indicated with quotations. If a photo, biography or autobiography is known to exist, a link will be made if there is an on-line version, and references will be made if there is not. Links to the person's spouse or spouses, children, and in-law families are provided, and links or references to more detailed genealogical, historical and personal interest information is provided wherever it is known to me.
This material is being expanded as fast as the pages can be prepared for posting on the web server. If you have any interest in knowing more about any name that appears on these pages, or if you see a place for any additions, corrections, or comments, please contact me, the author by e-mail using the following link: Phillips Verner Bradford
An alphabetical Index of all known ancestral surnames is provided, with links to the oldest known ancestor with that surname, and links to the most recent person of that surname from which I am descended.
This list includes only family surnames that are genetic ancestors to me. All my ancestors in the text of the biographical sections are indicated with an asterisk (*) following the name. There is also an index of in-law surnames, which includes surnames of in-law families,half-relations, adoptive parents' surnames, and aliases, wherever they are known to me.
Anyone who would like to share their genealogical information with me, especially if there is an intersection with any of my ancestors, cousins or in-laws, I would welcome correspondance and will link to your site.
