The main genealogies presented on this website are now the consolidated American and English genealogies known as the Founding Fathers genealogies.  These genealogies are mainly the work of Jane Bandy Eubank & Samuel Burton Eubank with considerable help from Dale Bandy (USA) and Derek Bandy (England) with grateful thanks to all the many researchers who provided information and who are acknowledged in the notes.

  The majority of Gedcom downloads have now been removed from this site because we have become aware that some files have been pirated and are being offered for sale.

The best way to let me have data for publication on this site is by sending it as an attachment to an e-mail.
I can handle most formats, the one to choose is the one most appropriate to the data the way you have it now, which will transfer the most meaning (information) e.g.:

If you are using a genealogical package please export to GEDCOM and send that.  If you have FTW, I can handle the .FTW format as it stands.

If the information is simple text, or text laid out to show meaning ( e.g. indentation, italicisation etc.), then Word processing formats are best - I use MS Word 2000, which can handle most common formats - if all else fails .RTF or  plain old .TXT will do.

if you have the data in a spreadsheet, send the spreadsheet. I use MS Excel 2000 if you have another package please send me a .CSV.

if you have the data in a data base then I can handle MS Access 2000 directly or .CSV representations of most others.

You can Zip files if you want to keep your connect times down.

If you have the data in some other electronic form let me know what it is as precisely as possible and what export format options the package gives you - then we can confer and decide.
