Gateway Ancestors with Completed Magna Carta Trails

Underway or Under Review

  1. Not all Gateway Ancestors are included in Richardson. An answer in this G2G discussion by Kimball G. Everingham, III, editor of Richardson's books, includes this explanation: "Douglas' work only covers 17th century immigrants. But even some of those with known medieval ancestry are not included for various reasons. Most of the immigrants included are fairly closely related to other included immigrants. Those with long, rambling, undistinguished ancestry, and unrelated to other immigrants, are not included. Others with unquestionable medieval ancestry, but some difficulty documenting a single generation, are not included.... The point is, just because an immigrant is not included in Douglas' Royal Ancestry series, does not mean he believes the descent is in error, though it could." (commented May 10, 2014 by Kimball Everingham)

This is an active Magna Carta Project space page, but the Gateway list needs to be reviewed for currency.
