Amanda, there is no complete Billington Family Tree that works for everyone, since different generations of children married different spouses and had different children for 14 or more generations since John Billington, Eleanor, and sons John Jr., and Francis arrived on the Mayflower in 1620. You need to start with yourself and build backwards to each generation until you come to the end of the trail, or the beginning, depending on which way your're looking at it. So it's you, then your dad, then your dad's dad and so on, following the Billington trail. Fill out all you know on a tree form, then you will possibily have to do some searching until you find others with basically the same connections/links as you. It's a quest and is rather fun. I am a 14th generation descendant. Happy hunting!
Pat
