The next step would be to mail and/or e-mail family group sheets to each other. I can give you info from the Richard & Sarah Jane (Shaw) Hungerford family to the first Thomas Hungerford and also give you what I have coming forward. I'm interested in Richard and Sarah down to the present time. I have found that the more recent family data is harder to come by due to privacy issues, etc.

I prefer to receive info via hardcopy/snail mail only because I like to review it before I enter it into my database--I catch a lot of nuances, errors, and items that raise further questions in this way. If you would rather do it electronically I would be happy to do it that way too... My e-mail is

By the way--proving the connection between Thomas of Hartford/New London, CT and the English Hungerfords is the "Holy Grail" of the Hungerford family historians. The parentage has yet to be proved. I look forward to hearing from you. Sorry for the delay in my sending this communication.



P.S. You and I are 8th cousins.
