Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor
of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users'
privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your
privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket
to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

I have a problem connecting my ancestry, working thru ancestry.com, and my own historical records.
My mom was Helen J Cleveland. My grandfather was Howard Edward Cleveland (1897-1956). My mother's records show his father as Milton Denzil Cleveland (1840-1925). These family records further show his father as (unknown) Cleveland and (unknown) Crocker. The Cleveland Geneology book shows these two to be Jonathan Cleveland (1824-1904) and Huldah Ann Crocker (1823-1887), with a child John Milton Cleveland (1850-).
Other Ancestry.com family tress take John Milton Cleveland to be the "Milton" that I am looking for, without acknowledging or explaining the name discrepancy. The geneology PAF from this site shows this Jonathan Cleveland having a single son, Joseph, who does not appear in the Cleveland Genealogy book.
Undoubtably, I am descended from Moses Cleveland. I would love to bridge (with sources) this gap.
