Attached in pdf format is a manuscript genealogy I originally distributed (in a slightly earlier version) to a few libraries in 1993.  Its format leaves much to be desired.  For one thing, it was originally prepared in WordPerfect, Courier font, and the subsequent evolution of word processing (in some respects, lamentably) in the direction of Microsoft Word and Times Roman has lead to a number of conversion issues (for example, what were originally "" symbols are now generally commas).  The page numbers in the table of contents are no longer accurate.

More fundamentally, this was only intended to be a "preliminary study," as reflected in the title, and it lacks full citations to sources.  Further information is now available on many of the families treated and the paper as a whole needs a thorough reworking.  However, as it has now been 17 years without my having put substantial new effort into the family, and given that portions of what is contained in this version have become increasingly available on the Internet, there does not seem to be any reason not to make the entire document available for what it is worth.

Holman Genealogy

More current information on the descendants of Richard Rue, who include the children of Edward3 and Miriam (Rue) Holman, can be found in the paper on the Descendants of Richard Rue, made available on this website and published in 2007 as Appendix H in Descendants of John Cox of Abington, Indiana and Joseph Cox of Hampton, Illinois.  Cameron Allen has also published a very useful article on the Laforce family.  See Allen, Cameron.
