When complete registered members will be able to see summary information. Remember though that to see detailed information you will need to Join the DNA Project.

I will then send you an email with a link so that you can submit a DNA sample via Family Tree DNA, once your results are returned you will be given access to the entire DNA Project.

I have added to the 1790 census images. There are now 68 images available for viewing. Simply clik on the icon to the right of the person in the list, you are interested in seeing. I have also added a new database. There are now 300 source records online for viewing by registered members. The Marriages database is now online as well. So far there are 22 entries in it. Additionally I have begun adding the Henry number for the marriages to help you locate the right person. Want to know what a Henry number is? well click on the "Identification" link on the top menu for more info. There are also 13 new photos in the photogallery for everyone to view. You will however need to log in to see the marriage database and the 1790 Census images.

I have just finished the coding needed to be able to display the 1790 US census database on the website. I have added about 60 families with the surname of Ackley or one of its dervitives (meaning misspellings....). I have also added a link that enables you to see an imge of the actual census from 1790. The census pages for the first 6 families are already available. I hope to have all of the images up shortly.

I have also added to the number of Revolutionary War documents I have online. There are now over 200 pages of Revolutionary War documents available, with more on the way. To see a listing of the growing number of documents and records available you can click on the "What's available" link at the bottom of every page.
