Stoneburner Genealogy Files

At the request of many who attend the Stoneburner reunions in Edinburg each year, family pages for those families have been created and placed here in downloadable files. These represent but a small portion (less than 2%) of holdings and, since their creation, have become somewhat dated.

These vanilla ASCII files are intended to be directly copied to an HP LaserJet or InkJet with a fixed pitch font printed at six lines per inch. In addition, various printers either do or do not skip the first and last half inch on each page.

Therefore, these files have control characters as their first line to establish these parameters which you may need to edit for other printers.

Of course you may use any editor of your choice to read and/or print the files.


Those files with an extent of .PRT should be able to be copied directly to a HP (compatible) laser printer or inkjet printer. For pin printer (e.g. EPSON), you may need to delete the escape sequences from the first line. The files are:

31 Mar 1998 - 9K

10 Aug 2000 - 220K
10 Aug 2000 - 326K
Over a dozen (unrelated?) Stoneburner families where each progenitor has a unique number (e.g. STN:1, STN:13, STN:4,...). STN:1-9 has first nine STNs, etc. Note numbers needed when you run query.
13 Apr 1998 - 229K
Combined index for above (*.PRT) files only
This file represents less than 2% of the master index. (LASERJET, INKJET format; assumes 15 char/inch fixed pitch font). Ready to be copied to printer (COPY INDEX.PRT PRN)

It is also possible to search the indexes online for more current data.
