Sampson Waring Ancestors Project

Sampson Waring (Waring-405) is a "Rocket Ancestor" -- he was born in 1616 in Shrewsbury, England and migrated to Virginia and then Maryland, but he was a member of the landowning class in England.  I just invented the term "Rocket Ancestor" to suggest that his ancestry just keeps going back forever.  English gentry and nobility, Welsh royalty..

He has thousands of descendants in the US.  Probably ten thousand or more.  You might be one of them.

I've been working on documenting his ancestry going back for over a year and it occurs to me that others, particularly other descendants, might like to help.  So I created a personal free-space project:  Sampson Waring Ancestors Project

You'd need pre-1500 certification to work on the ancestry, and if not, could work to document his descendants.  Send me a note!
