Great work and thanks for sharing. Do you have Bernard Ezi IV & Joan of Lusignan in your family tree. Looking forward to hearing back. We both have similar relatives.

Appreciate the enormous amount of time and energy you have put into this amazing labor of love. I am particularly interested in finding and correcting errors in my tree for relatives from the Middle East in the 800 BCE to 200 BCE timeframe.

A new term I had never known: Gateway Ancestor :) I too enjoy reading diverse assessments of current situations ...distant cousin Thomas Jefferson would agree :) DNA cousins via this line have been  in touch..fascinating walk through history and your site makes it easier to contextualize. J

de Coggeshall - my Harlakenden line starts with Mabel Harlakenden b1614, dau of Richard Harlakenden and Margaret Huberd Hobart. Mabel came to America to marry Gov of Mass Bay Colony, John Haynes b1594. She is a Gateway Ancestor.

I appreciate your labour of love in maintaining this very valuable site to accelerate our research. I am a Trump supporter but this is YOUR site and you can engage in whatever politics you wish. As a matter of fact, I rather enjoy reading what you have to say, and have great respect for your passionate position. We can always agree to disagree. What a boring world it would be if we were all alike.

Nice pedigree website. Would like to correspond more about pedigree programs. I have one in development.

The joy of Serendipity. Researching a name of from contemporary German society to check their ancestors, I stumbled upon the family name HEUBEL in my maternal line As they were from the same little city in a Thuringian Lutheran principality with roots in Bavaria I knew it was the same family. A little digging with clues from your site and other online sources, I was quickly able to fill in the pieces and connect to my line. Julius Ernst Wiegand Heubel was revealed as a 1st cousin 9x removed. His father a trusted adviser to the Prince of Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt and recipient of a Coat of Arms from Holy Roman Emperor Leopold. Dankeschoen! :)

Wish you would keep your politics to yourself. Free speech is not shoving your opinion down everybody else's throat. This is a genealogy page in case you have forgotten that. I have been constantly on this page for the last 10 years but no more. Just tired of your politics.

Version 80 has just been uploaded. Lots of additions and corrections! Yay!!!

Information on America's on-going political tragedy is now presented in a less intrusive way, and only via links.

I definitely lack the expertise and time -- especially TIME -- to investigate conflicting sources. On some of these old British lines, there is usually much speculation and guesswork. I always insist that researchers use my site only as a starting point for hints and look for better sources.

Referring to your Coggeshall chart, other sources show different names (see parentheses)
1-4 Thomas, Thomas, Thomas, Thomas
5 Ralph
6 Ralph (John?)
7 John
8 John (Richmond?)
9 John
10 John

One source shows 7-John's wife as Sara daughter of Roger le Brun, another shows her as Sara daughter of John Bruen.

Richmond is an uncommon name -- there are only two other males with that name in my database.

If there's an especially good webpage, tell me and I'll link to it from the Coggeshall line.

Dear Jamie: Is there a way to assist with the de Coggeshall line to patch up the Skip Generation markers? I am happy to help as this will also shed more light on Family history and lore.

Am currently working on HARLAKENDEN also,friends of the Tudors, and also involved in a Great Migration mystery involving the Harrington, Clinton, Knyvett and Hastings Families.

Perhaps all genealogists would agree that such research never gets duller, only increasingly more thought provoking and enlightening. Thanks for MANY HOURS, DAYS, nay YEARS of ongoing edification! :)

Vis a vis current trends in our Constitutional Republic, I have found Monarchists albeit Monarchs, supporters of Independence, Reformers (some executed), Loyalists, Quakers, victims of the Salem Hysteria, Archbishops of Canterbury, Plymouth colonists married to Wampanoags, legitimate offspring and others not quite on the right side of the sheets,Bible translators, publishers (including of Erasmus) and even Luther as a Godfather to a Jewish ancestress. Love them all :)
Thanks for helping to bring unity to their stories and depth to our understanding of "Family!" :)

The indexes are still intact. You simply need to scroll down to the link(s).

But do take the time to read some of the news from Washington -- I do update it periodically. The highest priority of all Americans should be to make themselves aware of, and work to thwart the calamity befalling us.

I have found your web site to be invaluable in my attempt to unravel my wifes genealogy. I have overe 21,000 of her grandparents and still have some holes that can be filled with your information. I tried accessing your site (after a time of medical issues) and am having trouble getting into the index. The stuff about Trump keeps popping up but hopefully that will be gone, sooner than later. How could this happen in our country? If there is a way to continue my research through your site, I would appreciate being able to follow the lines that I was interrupted in following due to circumstances beyond my control.

Yesterday I added the Coggeshall lines I was missing, using your source and others. I'm afraid the lines ended up with several "(skip this generation?)" markers. :-)

Dear Jamie: If there is anything I can do to put de Coggeshall into a more useable format just say the word; after all, we seem to be Cousins thousands of times over! ;)

Thanks for your words, Dean Pruitt. I feel bad to be hijacking my own site and degrading the genealogical search experience with political messages, but I couldn't live with myself if I didn't speak out. This is by a huge margin the scariest, most disastrous national tragedy of my lifetime. I am afraid that America will lose its greatness permanently because of this disaster, that our grandchildren will look back and agree that the election of Donald Trump was a supreme sorrow. I am filled with gloom and grief.

I'd planned to have a Version 80 of the website prepared by now, with massive additions and corrections, but am so gloomy I make only slow progress. And now de Coggeshall Line and Anonymous (you can't hide with that name; I think I know who you are!) have given me more work for Version 80! :-)
