Welcome to the Staples family genealogy. Family units are arranged alphabetically by the first name of the father (or single-parent mother). Links are provided to enable you to move up and down each lineage. To follow a line back in time (ancestors), click on the underlined portion of “(son of …)” or “(dau. of …)” beneath the name of the person you want to trace back. To follow a line forward in time (descendants), click on the name of the person whose offspring you want to see. A plus sign (+) following a name means that that person had one or more children, but that family group has not been added to this web page. To view documentation, including census data, click on the link “documentation and notes” below a family.
How you can help. All information, especially source material, for inclusion in this web page should be sent to email@example.com or mailed to “Staples Genealogy c/o V. F. Thomas Co.; 183 Pleasant St., Apt. 1; Canton, ME 04221”. And, of course, please report all errors.
A little work by each of us will save a lot of work for all of us.
