Introduction


The main purpose of this book is to help one trace New England ancestors back to British royalty or nobility if the records exist. The primary question we address (and hopefully answer) in this book is as follows: How can one find, assemble, and properly organize the information one needs to trace and connect New England ancestors to British royal or noble ancestors?

The preceding question is particularly important because thousands of persons living in the United States today are direct descendants of British royalty or nobility. Many of these persons have no knowledge whatever of their royal or noble ancestry. In many cases the lack of records makes one’s ancestry impossible to trace—if this is the case, a search of the resources mentioned in this book should help one make this determination. In many other cases, however, there is a wealth of records, genealogies, CD-ROMs, books, and other resources which one can use to trace one’s ancestral line back to noble and perhaps royal ancestors; in this book, I have tried to demonstrate how to accomplish this with New England ancestors. The same method can often be used to trace other ancestors by utilizing similar sources of information.

Meet the Author

The author was born in San Francisco, California in 1931. He has lived in California all of his life, and has served as: elementary school music teacher; professional trumpet player and singer; CEO of his own speed reading and memory workshop corporation; attorney at law.

Credentials of author/compiler: Every reader should be concerned whether or not the compiler is qualified to perform such research and to compose this writing. Perhaps no one is truly qualified for such an endeavor, but the compiler's qualifications (or lack thereof) are as follows: Bachelor of Arts degree, Sacramento State College, January 31, 1959; Master of Arts degree, Sacramento State College, June 9, 1961; Doctor of Law (Juris Doctor) degree, Lincoln Law School of Sacramento, May 27, 1982. As a practicing attorney for many years, the compiler has spent thousands of hours performing documented research and drafting documents in the areas of business and corporate law, estate-planning law, and litigation. A more recent addition to the compiler's law practice is genealogical research—the compiler, however, is not a certified genealogist and the compiler apologizes for the lack of this certification.
