I am waiting on the results of my FTDNA mtDNA and Ancestry DNA.

I hope you enjoy the information in this GENi; it is accurate to it the best of my knowledge. I make every attempt to cross check any information I edit or add. There are some entries during the very earliest of record that are apparently "Fictional Characters." I did not add them and the information back to the 1800's appears to be accurate; anything before that time I am comparing other GENi contributors work to see if it meets my approval.

William the Traveler is my Fictional Character I portray in Medieval, Heritage and Cultural Festivals. I created the Character in the year 2000; it has no bearing on my Ancestors or Genealogical information other than I am a student of history and attempt to use Times and Places that are historically correct.
