This project merges duplicate profiles to result in one single clean family tree; traces, connects, verifies and documents the intertwined early New England families of Nichols, Sawyer and Converse. Collaborators, especially others who descend from those families as we do, are more than welcome. Send cousins Myrna or Erica a message and we will gladly join you up. There is much to be discovered.

General notes

The geni tree will represent verified and authenticated fact to the best of our collective and collaborative ability yet show a tolerance, in discussions, for presenting cases and theories.
