BTW, I have just found the newly opened LDS Ancestral File web site at www.familysearch.org and it is a gold mine. I have taken Ebenezer Burgess back to his father, William Burgess, b.1683 in Charlestown, MA and on the wife side of Ebenezer and William, have gone back to England and Scotland to the mid 1500's. Check it out if you haven't done so. I gather the web site is a work in progress so it is sometimes hard to get in. Persist. Thank you for responding. db
