Juliana White Chapter D.A.R. - Greenfield Family Histories

The information contained about these family histories was reproduced from a workbook giving summaries of various Greenfield families associated with the Juliana White Chapter of the D.A.R. Unfortunately we do not know who created these summaries or when they were created. We also do not know nor suggest any accuracy of the summaries, but offer them as potential assistance to anyone researching their family history. The document has been created in its entirety as a single PDF file. Near the beginning of the document you will see a summary of the sketches contained within the doucment. You may click on a name in that summary list and it will poistion you at the page containing the information concerning that person/family.
