The Blethen Genealogy book

Back in 2013 I put together a new version of the Blethen Genealogy, which is in the public domain. This reformatted and reset version is a fairly faithful reproduction of the original. The Blethen Genealogy takes the family back to the New England colonies and to Wales.

While I do have some questions about the veracity of some of the lineages, it is an interesting read.

My 2013 version is available on Lulu.com, just follow the link below:

New Version of Lifelines

There is a new version of lifelines on github, 3.2.0 alpha. It is a 64-bit conversion of the venerable genealogy program and scripting language.

So far it works fine for me on Fedora Linux 30.

Here’s the link: Lifelines on Github.
