I first got interested in genealogy 30 some years ago. My grandparents were charter members of the American Clan Gregor Society which started here in Charlottesville over 100 years ago. A yearbook was published every year just full of genealogical information. I had just about all of the yearbooks from my grandparents, so I started on my family tree inputting the data using Brothers Keeper.
Although my Aunt Jesse fed me family pictures and papers, the file lay dormant for 30 years ago until a family member died and my interest was rekindled. It’s amazing how much more information is available now with the internet.
As the database exploded some sort of boundaries became required. It was decided to only be concerned with ancestors in this country. All immigrants are indicated by capitalizing their entire names. The goal is to take all lines back to immigration. As a rule, only direct line spouses are included and only select children.
Census and other data are included in the notes section. The Find A Grave website uses volunteers so it is not always accurate, but since it’s a ready source of information the links are included when available.
