Braddish BILLINGS, a son of Dr Elkanah BILLINGS was one of the first settlers in what is now the capital of Canada. Braddish's house was left to the city by one of his descendants and has become the Billings Estate Museum. There is considerable interest in the genealogy of the BILLINGS family by visitors to the City Archives and this is an attempt to compile a reference chart of the family. It initially concentrated on the descendants of Dr Elkanah but an article in the The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, `Roger Billings of Milton, Mass., and some of his descendants, by Harold Ward Dana published 1938-1940, lead to an expansion to include the known descendants of immigrant Roger Billings. This has not yet been completed but it is now time to make the information available on line. I would appreciate any corrections or additions, which will then lead to a revised version.
This project has not yet been completed but it is now time to make the information available on line. It has been compiled from a variety of sources but not all has been verified. Most of these sources are derivative and researchers should check the originals whenever possible. Please contact me if you have any corrections or updates.
I have just upgraded the software for this site and am still learning the ropes, so please let me know if you find any anomalies.
