introduction

Here's a stab at a list of remarkable people pertinent to those of my close relatives living today. No particular care has been taken to be particularly comprehensive. Putting them in a timeline sequence order is fun way to look at them. For me it was interesting to recognize those who were alive at the same time...
~• Michael M. van Beuren (b.1952 ) curator. Doubtless, some of these assignations will be incorrect... but the wandering is nonetheless interesting... caveat lector

(another) Caveat

The path can be recalculated by clicking on the double arrows icn_refresh.gif next to the statement of relationship on each individual's profile page. Don't neglect to wander through the related projects listed at right... to get a sense of others involved and many other relationships.

DISCUSSION

Archbold van Beuren b. 1905 was an only child who had 4 children with Margaret Ziegler: 2 boys, then 2 girls. All four married. This woefully incomplete list relates to ancestors of all the descendants of the children of those 4 children.

Not every descendant of Archbold van Beuren will share direct relationship to each and every profile above... (because I include the direct ancestors of spouses too.)

Franklin Brown Wildman (b. 1906) & his wife Elizabeth Lee Bean also had four children: 3 girls and 1 boy. In order to be comprehensive (for my purposes, this project will also include ancestors of the daughter Phoebe Roberts Wildman (1932-2004) who is my (the author's) mother.
