This Jackson web site is in transition

For nearly fourteen years this web site has been dedicated to the descendants of Robert Jackson who settled in Hempstead on Long Island, New York.  Robert and his descendants will probably remain the heaviest focus but the site will gradually add more information about various Jackson lineages and become a home for various Jackson projects I have worked on.  Certain pages pertaining to research concerning Robert's line will remain here and will be repeated on Jerry Gross' Quilted Family Trees where you can continue find the most recent data updated 6 July 2017.   Updates to Robert's tree will be accomplished on the Quilted Family Trees site much quicker than on this site.  Jerry is a cousin who encouraged and helped me when the site was first envisioned.  He is a generation younger than I and it is hoped that this transition will enable the data to remain online longer.

Jerry's site uses The Next Generation software which has features not available on this site.  So I think viewers will appreciate the additional features such as an individual timeline, the ability to link documents, histories and media directly to the person individual’s pages and the ability to print pedigree, descendancy and individual pages in PDF format.  Also there is the ability to leave a comment directly on that site either for questions, corrections or additional comments.  As always, both Jerry and Janie welcome your emails.  You should be aware that the data is a compilation from various sources, some better than others.  So use these source references as hints and double check them for yourself.   This remains a work-in-progress and all additions, edits and corrections are appreciated!

The motivation and purpose for this site is summarized in the 'About This Site' below.  Items such as biographies, obituaries and wills still mentioned below will be moved to the Quilted Family Trees site as time allows.  Some items like histories and documents can be incorporated into features of that site.  Not everything needs to be put into individual notes as we can link the specific documents to folks.  The Table of Contents below is muddled right now but will improve with time and a bit more effort. So pardon our dust as things get moved around and we gradually settle into a good pattern.  Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.

  I am so appreciative of all the contributions that have been made by researchers and family members. But three stand out as deserving of special mention and thanks:
Bob Mitchell [RIP] for his ongoing research into Jacksons in TN, AL and the Carolinas;
Jack McAnally for his knowledge of DNA & research as it pertains to genealogy;
and Jerry Gross for his early encouragement and contributions.

The results you see on this site are truly the results of researchers willing to share and collaborate.  It is the good spirit of sharing and working together that has made this site such a pleasure! To all who have contributed and continue to contribute - thank you so much!!

"The more we share, the more we know!"

'We' is smarter than 'me'!

Jerry Gross has prepared a companion website using The Next Generation software
which has several features that are not available on this site, such as:
timeline, the ability to link documents, histories and media directly to the person
individual’s pages and the ability to print pedigree, descendancy and individual
pages in PDF format.   Jerry also plans to post many more photos as
they become available from fellow descendants.

The most recent update for Robert Jackson's tree is now available from where updates will be available much
more frequently and with less work on my part!
