I have most of the surnames in now, but have not written many of the stories yet. I am now receiving info on some of the family lines as people find this website. I'm still having issues adding info and I'm sure it's me.  On a few of the people it won't let me add a spouse and children. So I have added the info in the NOTE part of the person. Please contact me if you have comments, additions or questions. My only request is that if you use any of my information please state that you got the info. from me because I have spend an unbelievable amount of years working on this.Thank you.

Next item I have had YDNA testing on the Millegan line (this is only male to male,father to son, and so on . I would love for some of you Millegan male descendants to be tested too, so we have some more men to compare the results with.  I have also had the FTDNA FAMILY Finder (which is for both males and females) and it tracts both of your parents genetic matches. Please some of you do that too.  Let me know if you do this and I'll send our kit numbers to you. (updated: 6-29-2016)
