The Genealogy Research of Lynne Roberts
This website includes both of my genealogical lines — paternal, or Roberts and Hammond, and maternal, or Norwood and Paddock. I have produced them here in both the pedigree format including family group sheets, and as narratives starting with the first immigrant ancestor of the line, or in the case of Norwood, the first Norwood who established his family in Bermuda. Some of this research was begun by members of my family who were very proud of their early American ancestry and their pioneer families. Over the past few years I have attempted to organize and source their work and put it on the computer, as well as research the rest. You may find early work done by me that is improperly entered, sourced, or incorrectly included. Over time I have become more proficient, and like most researchers, have come to appreciate the value of original documents where available and the usefulness of including detailed and accurate sources and citations. But the early efforts are still there to be corrected.
I am pleased to acknowledge the constant and generous assistance from many other researchers who made my progress possible. However, I must state categorically that I alone am responsible for everything published on these pages, including all the errors, and it is my hope that visitors who identify shortcomings in this work will contact me and let me know so I can correct them.
Pedigree Lines / Family Group Sheets
Please select the database that includes your surname and then select the specific names in the surname list or name index that follows, or simply follow the pedigree to your desired ancestor.
Descendant LinesI have included the following Descendant Narratives in order to provide the results of extensive research that has ranged beyond the limits of a direct ancestral line found in the pedigree format. They begin with the first ancestor researched, in two cases the immigrant ancestor, and follow the narrative format through eight or nine generations. You may find some statements or facts awkward or difficult to follow because I failed to adjust my data input to the genealogy software format. Please let me know if you run into anything that is difficult to understand or that needs correcting.
Please select the database that contains the surname you're searching for and select the name you want in the surname list or name index provided.
