|About My Ancestors
This is a work in progress that I have been planning to organize for years. I now have some time so hope you find it useful and will e mail me with any corrections or feed back you have. I have tons to add and some such as civil war records I have not even started on yet.
I will be adding pictures and notes plus more information on people but wanted to get the basic information in as soon as possible.
I hope to add stories so please share what you would like to see here but if you send a story of someone still alive be sure to get their permission to use it on line. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Genealogists Psalm
Genealogy is my pastime, I shall not stray It maketh me to lie down and examine half-buried tombstones. It leadth me into still courthouses; It restoreth my ancestral knowledge.It leadeth me in paths of census records & ship's passenger lists for my surname's sake. Yea, though I walk through the shadows of research libraries & microfilm readers, I shall fear no discouragement, For a strong urge is within me, the curiosity & motivation they comforteth me. It demandeth preparation of storage spacefor the acquistion of countless documents. It annointeth my head with burning mid-night oil; my family group sheets runneth over. Surely birth, marriage, & death dates shall follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the house of a family- history seeker forever.
