Don not really!
The AF is only going back one generationL don you love the white pointers BUT Thay are not what they are. Do u know that Ferrell Miller had big white setters in the early 70's Crockett and Flamming Star crosses. And yes they were reg by Ferrell 4 of them. Hum! Don the AF told me they are not going back but one gernation because it would open a whole can of worms, and they did not want to go there. And they do not cross reference. Just take it for what is worth breed the best dogs and maybe the worst the genes will pick up from all generations. Just keep them good genes that you like breed them it will take many years maybe. And do a lot of praying.
If you get a great dog you have been blessed
