The Third Volume of the series, The Rambo Family Tree, by Beverly Nelson Rambo and Ronald S. Beatty is available for purchase. Nearly all of the Rambo families in the US are descended from one common ancestor, Peter Gunnarson Rambo, who landed on the shores of the Delaware River in 1640 at what is now Wilmington, Delaware. This 2300 page history of the Rambo family describes Peter and his six children and lists their descendants which can be found in every state in the Union. This third volume of the series is the first volume published and describes the children of Gertrude Rambo Bankson, Peter's second child and eldest daughter. Up through 1850 all the Bankson and Bankston families in the US are believed to be descended from Gertrude and her husband, Andrew Bankson (spelled Andreas Bengtsson in the Swedish records. Bankston and Bankson are the primary names in this volume.
