Phillips Family Genealogy Forum
I completely agree with the statements about Ancestry.com--I have never seen so many screwed up family trees in my life. Incidentally, although I am a member of Ancestry I find it difficult to gather really sound information prior to 1850 and if you're looking at Colonial History I find it not helpful. Most of their television ads have people who have found ancestors in the 1940s, perhaps even back to the early 1900s--that is easy enough information to obtain on your own.
Getting back to the three William Phillips (I took a DNA test and came within two matches of a Williamson Phillips b. 1790 in North Carolina. My earliest finding for my ancestor, Jacob M. Holloway is a birth in 1807 in Tennessee. I have suffered through family trees on Ancestry and have never been able to find any connections.Jim Holloway
