What you will find here
Through the years I have seized
the opportunity to visit old relatives who shared memories of those long
gone before us. Those memories, and contributors additions have enabled us
to personalize at least a few we have researched. I'd like to offer some of
the treasures we, and others, have discovered. We strive to piece our puzzle
together, and hope you will assist us in this monumental endeavor. If you
are closely connected and have stories and/or photos to share, please
I welcome any correction,
and if we connect, I solicit your additions. Please be assured I make
every effort to protect the rights of the living by omitting personal
information on recent generations, trying to keep this site's purposes
for researchers only. If any errors are found, please inform me! Thanks
You will find our surnames listed
below and farther down the page you will find a searchable surname index to find
your connection as well.
Frames are only in use on this main page, and the index pages, but if you don't
even want them for that -
While names with dates and
sources are imperative to genealogical research, and the foundation for
solid documentation, my goal has always been to form a
vision of these ones of our past, to personalize each
of these families and family members - to bring them life again, if only
for a fleeting moment. Connected to our primary
surname links you will find specific personal information, old photos,
documents, family stories and legend.
There is a listing of what
is included on all pages, on the site index linked below. You might first
want to check for a connection on the surname index also linked below.
