I am indebted to Gary Boyd Roberts of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, who compiled the book "Ancestors of American Presidents", 2009 edition. I met Gary when I attended the Southern California Genealogy Conference in Burbank in June 2009. After almost an hour of discussion on the Royal Ancestry and Mayflower Ancestry of my wife, Emelda -- I purchased his recent book on American Presidents (who also have royal and Mayflower ancestry). His book has loads of information - much more than what I could use - along with his multiple sources to back up his hundreds of charts.

I then decided to add more than 1000 names to this database - to document the common ancestry of my wife and various US presidents. Emelda is a distant cousin to more than 25 Presidents of the United States.

Please feel free to browse the list. You may even find your own ancestors!

Note - a tag of (~) in the prefix is used to indicate a Presidental line.
