About The Matkins-Massengill Connection
This web site was set up to show (as the name implies) the connection between my last name 
(Matkins) and my wife's maiden name (Massengill). It began as a school project for my son and soon 
became an obsession with me. The more info I got, the more info I wanted.

Please note the the spelling "MATKINS" was oiginally "MATKIN". It changed with my grandfather and his siblings. Not sure why.

Although I have tried to confirm the accuracy of names, dates, places and family connections, a lot of the information that I have has come from word of mouth or other family member research.

If you have any corrections or would like to add information please feel free to contact me at Chris.Matkins@Yahoo.Com.

If you share a common ancestor with my wife or myself and I don't have your family line on this site by all means let me know. I will work with you to get your family information on the site so that you may join us as we dig into the past.

If you think that your name is already on this site, let me know and I will include you in our Family Member information. See the security LOGIN box in the upper right corner.

Please pass this site on to other family members. The more family members who know about what we are trying to do, the more information we can collect. THE MORE WE KNOW - THE MORE WE GROW. Someone out there may hold a vital piece of the puzzle.

We are currently trying to expand both family lines as much as possible. The site is by no means finished. There are alot of blanks to fill in and many dots to connect.
