Thanks for the invite, a Jack, but I am really behind the curve when it comes to pre-1500s certification. I would love to help with that, what with my history background, but genealogicallay speaking, I think I’d be lost. I’m not familiar with the sources, though many of them are available online, and I’ve read the struggles you folks have had, whether to trust a source or not, choosing between differing accounts, etc. I am really amazed at the patience and hard work all of you out into getting it right. I think I’d better wait on that one. I’d love to, and I would learn a lot, but I expect I would still be reading y’all’s posts (can you tell I’m from the South?!) a year from now and still not contributing much.
An aside, any connection of your Maryland Days to mine in Virginia? They’re in my Shepherd line in the early 1700s.
