Welcome to our family history website which is dedicated to our combined families, ancestors and descendants. Here you will be able to view stories, photographs and documents regarding our family which will hopefully bring the past alive to you. Genealogy is a labor of love and always a work in progress. I believe it will be a life long project.
I became interested in genealogy many years ago when my son (then still in elementary school) was required to prepare a family tree in connection with a school project. I was disappointed to realize how little I actually knew about the people and locations that formed our combined heritage. Thus began this journey of discovery.
The information contained on this website which pertains to our direct line ancestors has been researched, sourced and verified by me. Information pertaining to collateral lines may or may not have been verified. I strongly urge you to do your own due diligence.
This website contains my genealogy database and is fully searchable for your ease of use. The database presently contains information on 14,349 individuals, 5,090 separate families and 2,767 unique surnames. The data has been supplemented with 7,487 notes and 4,517 pieces of media, including photos, documents, histories, military records, obituaries and much more. I incorporate new data almost daily - so stop by often!
I hope you enjoy your time on this website!
