All text and image content of this research (other than the compiled
genealogical charts) has been authored using a computer program called Folio
Views ™ and stored digitally in infobases. These infobases have
also been printed in color and bound as books for the use of my immediate family
My primary interest is in permanently storing this text and image content
digitally on DVD discs, not in authoring a web site. This site is
solely a byproduct of this primary interest and, of necessity, involves
compromises that would not be made if one were trying to design a comprehensive

There are over 450 PDF files linked to the pages of this site and its
companion sites (over 200 can be viewed on an iPhone or iTouch). They contain approximately
30,000 pages and 3 GB of data.
Some of the Acrobat .pdf files on this site, as well as
its companion sites, are quite large
(e.g., 595 pages; 65 MB in size). Depending on the speed of your
computer and internet connection, these larger files may take a while to load and
display, even though only one page is downloaded at a time. Although it may appear that nothing is
happening after you click on an image to display an infobase/book extract (Acrobat
.pdf file), be patient! Once all the pages of the .pdf file has completely loaded,
the Acrobat screen will open and display the extract. Until that
happens, however, it may appear that your computer has completely locked up!
The infobase/book extracts published on this site, and most of its
companion sites (see LINKS page), are only those
about people who are no longer living.
