A New Focus with Old Roots


My hernia surgery and too-lengthy recovery last summer convinced me that I cannot depend on having years left to complete the books on our ancestors for my descendants and relatives. I resigned leadership of the Magna Carta project, and WikiTree leadership, about two weeks ago, to focus on getting the book done.

It has been a very productive two weeks. Here are a couple of the profiles I worked on which will be in the first section of the book. They are part of a group in my tree who are all Quakers of New Jersey, beginning with several pioneer immigrants who were among the first settlers there.
