Note: FROM Email Address:


Hi! I am related to the Winslows (Plymouth Pilgrims) and your site has helped fill in a few blanks. I have an extensive family tree that was compiled professionally several years ago. There is a discrepancy with your site though. You have Kenelm Winslow as the son of Thomas/John Winslow, Esq and I believe that was actually his grandfather. If you look at the dates you will note that Thomas was 81 when Kenelm was born. I have that Kenelm's parents were William and Mary Bucke. You list William as Kenelm's brother and sister in law instead. Just curious if there was a way to clarify this information. Great site!

Does anyone else have any information on the parentage of Kenelm?--email Helene.
