I just found you tonight. I have inherited a 186 page genealogy effort written in about 1890-1910by my second great grandfather Joseph Coffin Pickard. After his retirement, he devoted his time to tracking down every Pickard in America and Canada and asking fir information on their family lines. ( I also have the letters he received in reply).
His flow chart begins with John Pickard b. 1623, and follows every son and daughter in every subsequent generation. There are gaps where info. was not received, but he managed to document almost all Pickard descendants up to almost 1900.
I have made a pdf of the chart, and a 7 page 400 name index to accompany it. That was necessary, as some last names changed as the daughters married. I am currently alphabetizing the letters and will link them to the chart’s page locations also.
My problem is what to do with it all when I am finished. I want to find a way to put everything up in the internet so it can be accessed by anyone seeking Pickard information.
I would be happy to send screenshots of pages to you to verify this. I found your website because of a search regarding a letter sent to JCP with info on James Coffin and Mary Severance.
