A. H. Gilbertson's Genealogy Page
In this web page, I am sharing PDF files of genealogical research that I have done over the last 30+ years.
I now have completed six drafts to share. They are all in the same format, which is that of an ahnentafel (ancestor table), and they all start with one of my great-grandparents:
Ancestry of Edgard Worthington Hubbard (ancestors mostly from Vermont and Massachusetts - Hubbard, Jenison, French, Brown, etc.)

Ancestry of Charles Gracchus Neely (Neely, Elstun, Montgomery, etc. who settled in Indiana and Illinois)

Please feel free to download these for your own personal research, but rather than sending others the file, send the link. The reason is that I intend to make frequent updates to these books and the link will always contain the most recent versions.
I consider these books to be works in progress and welcome additional information and corrections. Some of the information is tentative. Please see the footnotes for more information. If you have further information please share it with me and I will make updates.
