Descendants of Charles Benest
TreeIcon.png


This tree was added in 2015 when we had reservations about the attachment of the top of this tree to the middle. While the succession of Charles Benests from generation one to four then seemed to us to be reasonably certain, the link to Charles at generation 5 was questioned. It was believed that there were two marriages between Charles Benests and Bisson women in 1764, one to Elizabeth and one to Rachel. Further research suggests that there are transcription errors and that there was only one marriage, between Charles Benest and Rachel Bisson. There is further disagreement between the two trees as to the parentage of this Charles Bisson, husband of Rachel Bisson. What we now believe to be the correct descandancy from Charles at generaton 1 is shown in Descendants of Charles Benest - 2

Record Search


If you want to search for records for any name in this family tree, or for any other family name, just click below on the first letter of the family name you are interested in. This will open a new tab in your browser giving you a list of family names beginning with that letter, for which there are baptism records in our database of half a million church and public registry records.

You can also select marriages or burials. Select the name you want and when the list of records is displayed you can easily refine the search, choosing a single parish, given name(s) and/or start and end dates.

The records are displayed 30 to a page, but by selecting the yellow Wiki Table option at the top left of the page you can open a full, scrollable list. This list will either be displayed in a new tab or a pop-up window. You may have to edit the settings of your browser to allow pop-up windows for www.jerripediabmd.net. For the small number of family names for which a search generates more than 1,500 records you will have to refine your search (perhaps using start or end dates) to reduce the number of records found.
