To expect that The Arterburn Cousins is exhaustive and without
error in every detail is to expect too much. Some corrections have
been necessary. Hitherto unknown or unexplored facts have been
presented. New ways of looking at the available evidence have
been proposed that better explain what we now know. I make no
pretense of having completed the task that was so auspiciously
begun in The Arterburn Cousins, but I do believe that I have
made important contributions.
Finally, Y-DNA testing has added a new dimension in helping to
uncover our deepest ancestral roots, as well to clarify our likely
Old World origins in more recent historical time. I hope you find
the entire results useful as a complement to The Arterburn Cousins,
and that you will carry on the quest.
If you have questions or comments about this project, please

Cordially and sincerely,
Charles R. Arterburn
