Gray,

I said the data could be traced back to the Ancestral File, not that it
originated there. The file contains the names of the individuals who submitted
the data. They would know their sources.

The LDS Ancestral File is obviously not an original historical source for
events that happened in the early 1700's as the church was not founded until

1830. There had to have been something *before* the LDS Ancestral File.
That is why I posted my question on the board asking if anyone knew of the
original historical source for this information.
