Generally speaking, ancestors who lived during the past two centuries (19th and 20th) are 'known'. Their place in our tree is documented by primary source materials (or transcriptions) that have included immediate-family records, family bibles, birth/marriage/death records, cemetery inscriptions, immigration records, census records, military records, church records, wills, organizational records, and federal/state/local government records. See the chart below.
Ancestors who lived earlier must, in most cases, be considered 'reputed'. Their biographic data has been derived mainly from the work of others - recorded in secondary sources that have included books, periodicals, manuscripts, microfilm, LDS records, commercial CD's, websites, and much-appreciated correspondence through the years. See the bibliographic and correspondence listings below.
Conflicting accounts have been resolved through careful consideration and selective acceptance. Each ancestor has been regarded individually and assigned at least an estimated year of birth. No ancestor has been simplistically 'downloaded' from a secondary source. Researchers must make their own judgments on the basis of materials they find convincing.
Descent from ancestors in the first four generations of our tree, who lived during the 19th and 20th centuries, are listed below in ascending generational order, with primary sources indicated (abbreviation key follows):

During the past three decades of genealogical research, we have been fortunate to receive considerable assistance from scores of correspondents, many of them distant cousins, who have generously shared their knowledge and findings. They have provided much-appreciated family charts, documents, photographs and other copied materials, as well as useful details, family lore, leads and suggestions. In return, we have attempted to be helpful to them and to others seeking our assistance. Aside from the invaluable contributions of our parents, uncles, aunts and first cousins, those to whom we are particularly grateful have been:
