Retson Roots

These are my ancestral roots. Root numbers are in order of paternal line followed by female root of the same generation. Number in front of each individual respresents the generation commencing with the author. The first link takes one to the root and the second person link in the line takes one to the family file of the root where it exits. I will continue to add to them as i get time .
