This update includes a significant addition to the Beck line. With the new information, we have the Beck line back to Johann Heinrich 'John Henry' Beck born in 1691 in Alsace-Lorraine, Germany. Johann came to America on the Lydia in 1740, traveling from Rotterdam, Netherlands to Philadelphia.

This update also includes work to clean up the list of places to make things more consistent.

Updated the Tong GEDCOM

This update includes connection of George Washington Tong (I77) to his wife Isabel Crawford (I76). Isabel connects to Colonel William Crawford (I1). Isabel's grandfather was John Crawford (I15). John was married to Francis Bradford (I21). Following Francis' line back, it connects to William Bradford (I3164), the governor of Pilgrims at Plymouth, Massachusetts.

This update also includes an extension of the Beck line - my great, grandmother Catherine Kate Beck (I86) who married Leander Ransom Tong (I81). I have extended the line another two generations back to Andrew Beck (I3167) and have additional information to add.
