GEDCOM Files

Most GEDCOM files were obtained by downloading from CompuServe or America on Line (AOL); they are of unknown reliability or authenticity, but generally they compare well with other sources and with each other, so most of the information in them is probably reasonably accurate (or at least accurately records what is found in some, perhaps ultimately, inaccurate paper source).
The material below which appears in a Monospaced font (similar to a Courier font) is generally derived by 'cut and paste' directly from information files (*.LST files) created at time of conversion from GED to PAF format or is from file descriptions downloaded from CompuServe. This font is also used for file names. My own additions or comments appear in 'Normal' font.



 

The original BINGHAM.GED file in GEDCOM format as downloaded from CompuServe was described thus:

Contains self-extracting (for PCs only) GEDCOM file containing 13,379 individuals and 4133 marriages, including family names Bingham, Smith, Locke, Foote, Pratt, Wyman, Hyde, Snow, Lathrop, Middleton, Russell, Lee, Davis, Woodruff, Kellogg, Fessenden, Backus, Hamilton, & many more. Includes U.S. Presidents Grant, F. D. Roosevelt, Bush, and Cleveland. Also Eli Whitney, Benedict Arnold, 2 Queens of England & 7 Presidents of the Mormon Church. NOTE: this is a large file at 617,260 bytes - expanded size: 3,177,847 bytes. GEDCOM from PAF.

After converting to PAF format there were 13,379 individuals and 4,133 marriages. The BINGHAM.LST file included the following information:

GEDCOM File Name: BINGHAM.GED

Into the above file was merged the WOODBRIG.GED file also downloaded from CompuServe. It contained 2926 individuals and 842 marriages (at a later date an updated version of this same file was also added, creating a vast number of duplicates most of which have been weeded out; these duplicates, where they still exist, usually have a difference of 3862 in their RIN numbers). After converting to PAF format the WOODBRIG.LST file included the following information:

GEDCOM File Name: WOODBRIG.GED

Original File Name: C:\FTW\WOODBRG2.GED

The resulting data set consisting of the combined BINGHAM.GED and WOODBRIG.GED comprising about 16,300 individuals was renamed BINGWOOD and forms the basis to which all later data was added.



On 19 February 1995 the PERKIN.GED file also from CompuServe was merged into the main file. It contained 139 individuals and 47 marriages. The PERKIN.LST file included the following information:

GEDCOM File Name: PERKIN.GED

Comments: Most of this information is from research done by Paul M. Perkins. His sources are listed in his work, on file at the Library of Congress.

There were very few individuals in common with the BINGWOOD files. In retrospect, this file should not have been bulk added in toto, for most of these individuals are only distantly related (if at all).



On 20 February 1995 the CHTERTON.GED file also from CompuServe was merged into the main file. It contained 263 individuals and 88 marriages. The CHTERTON.LST file included the following information:

The origin of this file is not clear but it is all in French and contains much English, Spanish, French and Italian royalty. Because it is in French a lot of dates seem to have been incompletely imported into PAF. Also many accented characters seem to have been translated into dashes ("-").

Many ancestors of Alfred the Great added from this file; lots of others added or updated here and there.

******************** Internet sites ************************

It has proven difficult to keep track of all the World Wide Web (www) sites on the Internet accessed for source material partly because the sites keep moving and changing their addresses and also because by following links one sometimes ends up in a whole new area.  In some cases I have downloaded pages to my local hard drive for perusal off line, thus losing the complete URL. What are listed below are generally web pages providing access to many (usually searchable) genealogical databases.

In the notes field of the BINGWOOD files where the source of the data is commonly indicated, the actual URL ('uniform resource locator', as displayed by Netscape or other Internet browser for each page displayed) has been given. This is often a query request to some genealogical database.

URL's and material copied (by cut and paste) from web page screens appears in MonoSpaced (similar to Courier) font; my own additions or comments are in regular font.



GENDEX -- WWW Genealogical Index http://www.gendex.com/gendex/

Interesting people in the Royal family tree by Mark Humphrys

This is a starting point for a number of interesting genealogies with links to many different genealogies, including the above. Many of these databases seem to be located at the University of Hull in the U.K.  Also contains some good short writeups regarding the validity of some of the very early genealogies.



http://pages.prodigy.com/NY/cranfamassoc/ne.html New England Families
This file contains many "old" New England families. It is a database of over 21,000 names. Files updated 14 Mar 1997

This is a large database which seems to be well researched with many references sited. It includes much early New England data.  Many include a few generations of English ancestors.  The surname list was carefully checked against the BINGWOOD database on 26 April 1997.  Many dates and places adjusted.  Quite a few new individuals added.



The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, Online Medieval and Classical Library   http://sunsite.berkeley.edu/OMACL/Anglo/
    Introduction
    Part 1: A.D. 1 - 748
    Part 2: A.D. 750 - 919
    Part 3: A.D. 920 - 1014
    Part 4: A.D. 1015 - 1051
    Part 5: A.D. 1052 - 1069
    Part 6: A.D. 1070 - 1101
    Part 7: A.D. 1102 - 1154

This fascinating on-line version of a famous ancient text has been used to flesh out biographical information about some of the very early English Kings.  Much of the early English genealogy accessed elsewhere has used this as a primary source. Note that where quoted herein by paragraph headed by an A.D. date, often the contents of that paragraph refers to genealogy many years prior to (or after) the heading date.

"ABBACY OF THE HOLY BLOOD / HOLY GRAIL EUGENIC MERMAID BRIDES"
120,000 wd Fantastical History of Western Civilization by Emmett Kingsway

Grail Knights of the "Holy Blood / Holy Grail", Mary Queen of Scots, Princess Diana, Margaret Sinclair Trudeau, & a Few Other Maeremaids

This rather fantastical site includes three genealogical charts (in image format which look like they have been scanned from some book) which agree with much that has been found elsewhere.  They include a few relationships not found elsewhere, some of which have been added.

Most of this text seems to be a series of 'teaser' questions to encourage one to obtain the full text (though where or how to obtain it is obscure).

It includes the following

DISCLAIMER: What follows is based upon the works of over 150 authors, all of whom are fully acknowledged. However, being as it embraces modern Holy Grail Theory as applied to some of the lesser known sub-histories of civilization, Mermaid Brides, conveyed by three fictional narrators, is semi-conjectural, and therefore can be taken "with a grain of salt".



New Advent Catholic Enclyclopedia http://www.knight.org/advent/

Aside from numerous entries of genealogical interest of various early and medieval church related individuals, the article on General Chronology about all the different calendars which have been used for the last two thousand and more years is very interesting and thorough.



"A Shi'ite Encyclopedia", Version 2.0 October 1995

http://www.al-islam.org/encyclopedia/newindex.html

Compiled by Ali Abbas (abbas@seas.gwu.edu) and Salim Shabbir Yusufali (yusufali@cs.stanford.edu)

This is a collection of rather scholarly articles about Islamic teachings. There is not much historical information. A few biographical details of Muhammod's daughter Fatima and her husband Imam Ali have been used. 


TARIKH-E-IMAMAT (A brief historical survey of our holy Imams) by Al-Wa'ez Hasan Alijah, Husayn Nazar Ali

This is quite a good Ismaili history Islam detailing the lives of each Imam down to the Agha Khan of today. [Unfortunately, the online URL for this site is unknown as I downloaded it and read it later]



Annuaire Généalogique Internet (Internet Genealogical Directory)
http://www.chez.com/agi/intro2.htm

Among much other useful genealogical related material are listings of numerous genealogy databases.  (The Bingham Genealogy Project is listed here -- it appears on the Canadian page, although its data is primarily American, at least post 1600)



Cindi's List of Genealogical Sites on the Internet  http://www.CyndisList.com/
Over 27,150 links, categorized & cross-referenced, in over 70 categories.
Web Master is cyndihow@oz.net

This site probably has more useful genealogy links than any other on the Internet.  It doesn't, so far as I can determine, contain any actual genealogy data, but it provides links to and collections of links to all sorts of data maintained by others.
