|About Cook/Smith Roots
For quite some time I've been interested in our family history. I seriously started investigating
it in April of 2009 and this is the result. It's a lot of fun and is often like trying to solve a
puzzle. You run into stone walls, but then you'll find a small piece that will open doors. If

additional information on our ancestors, please pass it along to me. This site is a work in
progress and will be continually updated so check back often. - Jim Cook
