I am retired. My wife and I are amateur genealogists and have been at it for over twenty years. I have two major stumbling blocks, the Brooke family and the Prescott family, but believe that I have a decent amount to contribute with decent sources to back up the data. Examples are : In New England the ancestors of William Coddington back to 1525 ( 1st governor of Rhode Island ) and in the South the Coor family back to England.
