Welcome to our family genealogy database. There are many more surnames here than Franklin and Allensworth. But being the surnames of my parents, they are two of particular interest. The database will gradually evolve, as is the nature of genealogy. Please let me know if you find errors, wish for more information, or care to contribute any information. Source citations will continue to be a "work in progress."

Note that I have revised the security settings so that a user account is necessary to view genealogy data. You can initiate an account by going to the Login page and then using the "Register for New User Account" button. Please include information about who you are and what lineage you are researching.

If you have any questions, comments, or would like to share research, please contact me -- Jeremy Franklin. I would especially appreciate hearing from you if we are cousins through any of the primary surnames listed above. Allensworth is a fairly unusual surname, so I have a particular interest in that lineage. Use the link in this paragraph to access the email page. I look forward to hearing from you!
