Portal To The Scribner Master Database and Narrative Family Reports
The John Scriven database has been compiled and graciously contributed by Ray Scribner, who has had extensive input from many branches of the John Scriven descendents. Ray Scribner's database is considered the most authoritative source of family data on this particular surname study available, and we thank him greatly for contributing his data for our use. We hope that by providing this data set, that we can resolve many of your questions, and coordinate our understanding of our family history in a meaningful way. And, if by reviewing this database you find that we are related, welcome cousin! PLEASE let us know of your existence, and your connection to our family by filling out an entry in the Scribner Database. We eventually hope to offer information for other Scribner lines in America.
The Benjamin Scribner dataset has been contributed by Robert Davenport. He may be reached by e-mail.
Ray's Scribner's new database update has been loaded. Go take a look on our data page. This is a MAJOR update:
The January Update increases the Scribner Family Database by 10%. There are numerous corrections and additions in it, however, the majority of the material has to do with the descendants of John and Elizabeth (Cloyes) Scribner's daughter, Mary (1702-1756), who married Thomas Gordon, Jr. (1701-1772). The main family lines included in this descendancy are those of Thomas and Mary's sons: Daniel (1732-1764) and Abigail (Judkins) Gordon; Thomas (1742-1819) and Dorothy (Gilman) Gordon; and Scribner (1744-1817) and Hannah (Marston) Gordon. Included are the descendants of Philip (1764-1831) and Lovey (West) Judd of New Hampshire and Strafford, Vermont. These lineages are followed from the 1700's into the 1900's.

Narrative Family Reports:
We have also begun writing narrative family reports, based in large part upon the database provided here by Ray Scribner. Click a link below to go to a report.
The tool we used to create this database was a gedcom-to-html program:
We owe a debt of thanks to Perry Lowell for researching the various software options and selecting this one. As I am sure you will agree when you view our data, this is a very sophisticated and graphically-appealing program, and I think her choice was a very astute one!
We will update this data on a periodic basis as changes warrant. Between uploads, we will post known changes to the News Page. As time permits, your webmaster will begin to link the existing images, biographies, and archives to the dataset, organized by family group.
If you are a Scribner researcher, and have data to add, questions, or inquiries about the content of the data posted here, please e-mail Ray Scribner directly.
