Ancestors of Melvin Ancel Roe
Welcome to my journey into my family history. Like many other
newcomers, I started with information downloaded from the internet.
Obvious errors in this information led me to trying to gather source
documents for all the data. Meeting other researchers has made
this a true passion and engendered a desire to share what I have found.
Thus, this website.
Different researchers want different things so I have tried to give
something for everyone. Clicking on one of the names at the left will
take you to a decendancy report that starts with the oldest
ancestor for which I have decent data. There, links are designed
to take you around the report quickly and easily. Clicking on the
ID number of a child will take you directly to their location as an
adult. Clicking on an ancestor name will take you backward to
his/her adult page. Reference numbers are given; to see an
abbreviated version of the reference, point at the number and it will
appear after a few seconds. The same reference numbers are used
throughout the website to make it easier for the reader.
If more detail is wanted than given in the decendancy report, just click on the
individual's name to go to a detailed sheet on that person with notes
and full references. In many cases there, you will be able to see
a pdf file that shows an image of the actual document or gravestone from
which the data was obtained, as well as information as to where and when
it was obtained. Clicking on the ID number on the individual sheet
will take you back to the decendancy report to the adult location of that
WARNING!! Unfortunately, I have not yet
verified everything I originally downloaded. Therefore, if there
are no references given or if the reference number is 6 (unsubstantiated
internet data), take the information with a grain of salt until you
verify it yourself.
If you can help me correct errors or add verified data, please contact
me at droe [at] detiaroe.com.
