The above family surnames have at least "starter" pages within the Tapestry system. Some are more complete than others, and all would benefit from having more "hands" working them. One of the important opportunities that the WeRelate system provides is the identification of the supporting evidence for each personal fact such as a DOB. If you know a solid (primary or secondary) source that supports (or refutes for that matter) any of the facts given here, WeRelate would appreciate either adding that source to the appropriate page, or perhaps just bringing that to someone's attention. This is intended to be a community system.
The Tapestry Project is narrowly focused on the the settlement of the "Western Frontier" along the Great Road from Philadelphia, west through Lancaster and the "Path Valley" of Pennsylvania, south into the Valley of Virginia, and further southward into the Carolinas and into Southwest Virginia. The "focus" of the project is fairly narrow in terms of time (roughly 1700 to 1800), but broad geographically. While the nominal objective is to have articles for ALL of the settlers who passed into this area during this time period, realistically, for those of us working on this project, we can individually expect to add detailed biographies/studies for only a few of them. Hopefully, as more people begin to work within the Tapestry, more lines will be examined in detail.
Periodically we focus on a specific surname present within the Tapestry project area and timeframe, for detailed examination. Typically, detailed examination includes:
Currently, the "Campbell" surname is being examined. Most surnames selected for detailed examination because they broadly interconnect with surnames that have been previously examined. In this way the most insight into family relations can be gained. The following represents a list of surnames which are being considered for future detailed examination.
