Below you'll find a little bit of my Ball ancestry. The names & information below are by no means 100% accurate. At present these are the best facts I've found on my Ball lineage. I hope to do more research on these lines and update the page further. I've found there are several other researchers doing 'Ball' genealogy. You'll likely find researchers with much more information than I have at
worldconnect and the Ball Family Forum. If you have more accurate or conflicting information than on this page, please let me know. Hope you enjoy the page!
