planned versions (options) of a Revised Edition will be available.  My vision for Rufus's book, The Grimes-Llewellyn Families 1635-1972 and  beyond  are described at planned editions and versions.

About the enhanced "My Personal Family Lineage"

The “My Personal Family Lineage” on unnumbered pages 62-68 of the original 1972 edition is now available in a separate file online. 

(Word 2003) The form is found at

Since each descendant should have their own "My Personal Family Lineage," it is offered as a MS Word 2003 document.  You can print it and make handwritten entries, or as an option, make keyboard entries.  The form is protected from inadvertent layout changes, but it is not password protected: so you can change it.  However, only the layout online, unchanged, can be used as an alternative method to submit amendments to the online family tree.

If you do not have Word on your computer, the file is compatible with "OpenOffice writer" which is free online at
