Welcome to  

                             ‘Old Beginnings’

 

          Welcome to my genealogical endeavor. As with all family tree’s this one will never be complete and is a definite work in progress.  I have always been fascinated with family history, however I really began to start getting into genealogy in January of 2001. Thus here is my work so far to date.

 

          Most of the work here has been obtained from internet sources and extracts from other family trees. While I am sure there are numerous errors it is a good guide. I am attempting to verify as much of the information I have as quick as I can (give me about 30 more years). If you have additional information, corrections, comments, concerns, whatever…, please let me know. If there is information on here relating to you that you do not want to share, let me know and I will remove it. This site is as much for you as me. If we all work together we can accomplish so much more.

 

          This website is by no means an accomplishment of my own, it is more a compilation of all of our efforts. I owe thanks to so many people who have helped me in getting starting, to include a few; Gary Kuschnereit, Carol Holt,  Barbara Byrom Driver, Roberta Byrom Abbe, Cola Sutton Tehee,  Martha Byrom, and so many others. And although I have never corresponded with him, a special thanks to Henry Harbin Byrom – without his original manuscript written in 1940 many of us would never have gotten as far as we have.

          While most of the information presented here so far concerns the BYROM’s and related families I am still researching all the family lines.  There are a few listed below:

 

Audrey’s lines:  FLOYD,  CROSS, McDONALD, BELL, NICHOLS, SIMONDS, ROGERS, GOODWIN, NEELY, SHAFER,

 

Donnie’s lines:  KRIPPENDORF, DONAHUE, JOHNSON, DILWORTH,  BYROM, HILL, ARNOLD, COOKE,  RODDEN, OSBURN

 

Our Databases

 

For most databases, those entries in red, mean I have identified them and they should be in the family tree. Additional information is always welcome. Would appreciate any help for those I have not linked. All of these links may not be up yet, but I will get them up as soon as possible. Check back often as I have several more to add in addition to these.

Some of the databases are quite large and may take awhile to load.

 

*Database problems? – This site is spread out across several different websites. Due to the size of some databases and the bandwidth limitations of the servers, some databases may not work temporarily due to exceeded space allocations. If this happens please try again later and if you would please email and let me know which one(s) are not working so that I may try and alleviate the problem. Thanks, Donnie
