Happy Thanksgiving, Betty, and thanks for posting your Mayflower Ancestors. I've included you at the compendium at this link: http://nutfieldgenealogy.blogspot.com/2011/11/my-mayflower-passenger-ancestors.html

That's very nice Betty, you must be thrilled. Now, I'm curious as to your DAR membership, have you heard anything on that?

I noticed your Doggett line, we share her father.
