Ever Think about DNA , how it could be applied to Genealogy ?
Wouldn't it be supper if we had a Pollard Data base that would point you to a Specific line of Pollard's ?

I recently spotted this in a Roots Web Product Watch
GenetiKit Genealogy Paternal Ancestry Signature
Genetic Genealogy Paternal Ancestry Signature The Surname test analyzes the DNA on your Y-chromosome (only males have the Y-chromosome) and reveals your Paternal Ancestry Signature that was inherited from your father who inherited it from his father, etc. (your Surname line). The GenetiKit is a home collection kit that comes with a swab to painlessly and easily collect a sample of cells from the inside of your cheek, which is then returned to the laboratory where DNA testing is completed within a few weeks. When you receive your Paternal Ancestry Signature, you will also be informed of exact matches or near matches with other samples in the database and have access to future database matches and web features for the next 12 months.

So back to the old one Sorry for any inconvenience !
The old one was abused by children as will happen from time to time and the People at Get Right could not bother to respond to my requests for help in cleaning it up .
So there is now a new guest book and a new page for the old Archived Guest Book entries .

I Have Ordered all Pollard Family Group Sheets
From Yates Publishing Co. And will post them to The Alphabetical List when they arrive
They are going on the List a few every day !
The Descendants of Sir John Fitz Randolph , July 20 , 2001 I have Received the Book Fitz Randolph Family Traditions , The Story of a Thousand Years Fairly Dry reading , but it does go back a fair way's
Randolph - Pangburn Book page 73
Also doing some research into the life and Military records of Nathaniel Fits Randolph and William Pangburn of New Jersey . I have with a lot of help traced Nathaniel's line back to Hugh Capet King of France d. 996 or so with a few Barons and such in between . However it will be his life , Work and Military record that we will be trying to trace now . Nathaniel's " Book Of Records" and the Journal that he kept .
The Alphabetical list of Pollard's is coming along nicely about 300 pages of them now [ March 3, 2002]. Doing this list is a real learning experience . I am seeing patterns in family names and migration , perhaps it will even help my research !
