I'll leave how to create a GEDCOM file to others more knowledgeable about that. You'll need to tell us if you use PAF or some other genealogical database program, for starters. The ancestry of John-1 WHITNEY of Watertown, MA, as we believe it to be properly proven, may be found at this web page: <<a href="http://www.whitneygen.org/families/johnw/ancestry.html&gt">http://www.whitneygen.org/families/johnw/ancestry.html&gt</a>; The parentage of Thomas WHITNEY of Westminster, probably father of John-1, is unknown. He was surely not the same person as Thomas, son of Robert and Elizabeth (GWILLIMS) WHITNEY, third son of Sir Robert WHITNEY of Whitney, Herefordshire. Our Thomas was too old to be that Thomas. For proof, see the links to articles by Jacobus and Reed on the above web page. The fact that Thomas WHITNEY of Westminster is called "gentleman" in many records is an indication that he is connected somehow to one of the two landed gentry WHITNEY families, the one of Whitney, Herefordshire, and the other of Coole Pilate, Cheshire. What that connection might be is currently not known. Research in English records continues. Regards, Robert Robert L.
