Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. I fall somewhere in between. I created this site to record what I've learned about my family history, in an attempt to connect with other researchers to bring our families together.
I started researching my family history in 1994, after the birth of my daughter. I felt is was important to preserve her family ties. What started as a record of known family members, has escalated into an obsessive search for the unknown.Most of my information was obtained from talking to relatives and and other researchers as well as some public records.
This is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any additional (or corrected) information, or if there is any way I can help you.
