This website contains the ancestors of my daughter, Alexandra Catlin Vaut, and related families.  It represents 50+ years of research, but still contains errors, omissions and unsupported information. I have tried to note where I have made speculative assumptions about various relationships and facts, but I know that I have not been consistent in this, so don't trust unsubstantiated information. I occasionally post versions of this tree on Ancestry and Ancestry/RootsWeb, but they will never be as up to date or complete as the version on this site. I continue working on this genealogy and make periodic changes to the data and additions to the tree. 

If you see anything wrong or questionable in my data, PLEASE contact me and let me know - particularly if you have good evidence to supplement or contradict what I have written here. I am happy to share my work with those who are serious about their own research and always willing to correct errors.

I keep up a log of significant updates in my research and to this database at Update Log (click here or on Update Log at the top of this page.)

My book Such Lives As These has been published and is available without charge at more information on the book click on Such Lives As These at the top of this page.)


Beware of information that is supported only by references to reference to Ancestry Family Trees and is not confirmed with other supporting evidence. I sometimes include such information to guide my own research, but you shouldn't trust the sources unless you can confirm them and their sources yourself.

Please cite all sources of information, including this website.
