Ancestors of Joyce Helen (Parker) Hervey arrived in America as early as 1616. They came from England, Finland, Sweden, and, if tradition can be believed, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, and native America. Some were tobacco planters, numbering among the First Families of Virginia; some were educators, lawmen, tradesmen, ministers of the gospel, subsistance farmers, and yes some were rogues and scoundrels. All have their place in history and in shaping who we the descendants are.
The ancestry report uses 'Ahnentafel' numbering. This means that a person's parent's numbers will be twice as large as the person's number. So if someone's number is 15, her father will be number 30, and mother will be 31. Her child will be number 7.
