Q. Is this a pay site?
A. No. Not ever. This data has been collected by family members for family members.
A. Are you sure we are related? My Mashburns are tall, light-skinned and rather handsone.
Q. Well, the reason for this is that our common Mashburn ancestor is five generations away. That means that we share only 1/32nds of the same genes—-lucky for you, huh? It appears that all Mashburns are descended from Edward Mashborne, a schoolmaster, who came to Amercia around 1698 from London. Some of us older folks may be as much as ten or eleven generations apart. Younger people even more.
