Welcome to my family genealogy page. When I started this project, I thought that I would be finished with it in about a year. Well, 2 and a half years later, I am still
working at it. Genealogy can be very addicting, just ask my husband who will always ask me when will I be finished.
The branches of my family tree are many. I've been researching my family tree for about 10 years. I love looking for lost relatives, be it through the internet, a
cemetery, a courthouse, etc. I hope you enjoy my site and visit again as I will be adding new information as time permits.
This site is dedicated to the memory of my ancestors. My work is to ensure
that they will not be forgotten!!! We have a small part of each of these people
in our blood. Their lives are our lives.
    A BIG THANKS goes out to all who have helped me fill in the blanks over
the past year and half. If you find a connection,
email me.
I've taken great pains to try to make the data as correct as possible, but I can guarantee that there is at least one or two errors in my date. If you find errors,
or have additional data, I would welcome the information. If you find material
on this website that you feel should be private
(mainly birth dates or marriage dates), let me know so I can take it off.
  Some families know a great deal about their roots: others know very little.
This site is an attempt to record what I've learned about our family history.
In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though  we live far apart.
  On this page, I'll provide a little information about who I am and what inspired
me to do this research. Most of this information was obtained from talking to
relatives and from researching public records. In the course of doing the
research, I've discovered that I have many more relatives than I ever thought.

DISCLAIMER : The information on this site is from my personal research,
as well as that of others who have graciously donated their findings. You are
welcome to use the information given here
Free of charge and I sincerely
hope it helps lead you to helpful pathways. However, as with all research
and much history, there are two sides to every story, and sometimes the two
do not agree, and sometimes the information you find is incorrect, no matter how "
REPUTABLE" you think the source. So, as with all legitimate research,
Do your own research-do not take the information here as GOSPEL. It may or
may not have come from proven sources, and may have ERRORS. Use the information found here as pointers for your next step or as possible leads,
But do not take it for granted.
Photos and old papers
That have a special place
Within the treasured memories
That cannot be replaced

Time for us to gather
Each memento of the past
Gathering such beauty
Forever it will last

Capturing our family
With books from long ago
Adding to them everyday
As years in life will flow

Greatest compilation
Of life that has gone by
Adding to these moments
With love in great supply.
