Eligible ancestors fall into 4 categories
Monarchs of Modern Kingdoms, such as Jordan and Saudi Arabia
Monarchs of Crusader era Kingdoms, Principalities and Counties
Monarchs who were temporarily resident during the Crusades
Monarchs of the ancient Kingdoms of Israel and Egypt
Proofs for category 1 will normally consist of modern records such as birth, death, and marriage certificates, and published biographies.
Proofs for categories 2 and 3 will normally consist of modern records such as birth, death, and marriage certificates for recent generations, and will be assisted by books such as Douglas Richardson's 5 volume set "Royal Ancestry", 3 volume set "Plantagenet Ancestry", and 4 volume set "Magna Carta Ancestry", Frederick Lewis Weis' "Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists Who Came to America before 1700" 8th Edition (prior versions were "60 Colonists"), Gary Boyd Roberts' "Royal Descents of 900 Immigrants who came to the American Colonies, Quebec, or the United States" (prior version was "600 Immigrants") and George Edward Cocayne's "The Complete Peerage", edited by the Hon. Vicary Gibbs. Ky White's "The Genealogy of the Crusaders" may also be useful.
You may also send the genealogist a "record copy" of your approved application for the Baronial Order of Magna Charta, Order of the Crown of Charlemagne, or similar organizations, or your pedigree charts or some names of any people with a title of baron, lord, earl, duke, king, etc. He will
check his computer data base and send you an E-Mail showing all of the eligible Kings and Queens in your ancestral line.
Category 4 is included for completeness. It is unlikely that applications in this category can meet the required genealogy standards.
