About Riddle Atkinson Smith Arendall of Halifax and Pittsylvania County Va
I have added newly found family members and pictures, Rice, Newman, Lawrence, Robertson, 
Johnson, Baugh.....These are family's that grew up at Mount Herman Baptist Church, Reidsville 
and Franklin County, VA (This is where I live)   
I have added families of Cathy Craggs Taylor from the United Kingdom.
Our world seems to be getting smaller.

Our Family Connection with Queen Elizabeth II, became Queen of the United Kingdom and Head of 
the Commonwealth on 6th February 1952, and the ROYAL FAMILY begins with
Col. George Reade

I have prepared the "Riddle Atkinson Smith Arendall families of Halifax and Pittsylvania County 
Va.” site for each individual in our family.  I started with my immediate family, my family 
bibles, information from my sisters and my cousins.  Then I went to the internet and started 
gathering information from other family tree sites. I have posted some of these family sites in 
the "Useful Links" below left.  It is my intent to invite other family members to join this 
site so that they may share their family histories. I hope that this legacy will be of benefit 
to our children and their offspring.

This section is the results of family members that have provided pictures of our relatives.  
We are very fortunate that these relatives have saved these pictures and have the ability to 
scan and download them for our enjoyment.  I encourage you to send me any pictures you may have 
to be posted to our site.  We have over 2000 pictures in our albums. 

I have sent invitations to all my family member.... inviting them to visit our family 
Please contact me if you have additional family members to be added to the distribution.  Let 
me know if you have problem navigating within this site.  A family tree password is included 
with each invitation.  
The main password is my e-mail address and password is the middle name of ME, Doc Smith, Carlis 
Smith, Manuel Smith and Joseph Silber.

All family members will receive newsletters from our website at because I 
identified you as a member of this website. This newsletter contains birthday 
reminders of your relatives, latest photos and other useful information.  You can click on 
names and words to receive addition information from the newsletter.  If you do not wish to get 
emails such as this, please see the link at the bottom of this message to unsubscribe.

We have some good stories posted on our webpage.  Please provide me with additional historical 
information and stories about our families.  This can be "Pages" or just short thoughts that 
you have each day.  Type these out and send to my email address, as you think of them so I can 
post them on the website.

I have really enjoyed developing this “Family Tree Site”   I welcome any additional 
information, corrections, better individual pictures, additional historical pictures and 
suggestions.  Email your information to me.  The majority of the family tree information and 
pictures is being provided by; my sister, Sandra Riddle Gibson, our cousins, Nancy McDowell 
Shelton and her husband Kenneth Shelton, Lynda Kessler McDowell and Rose Marie Arendall Hunter.

Let me have your ideas.  I am saving all the information on my computer.

IF I find additional (interesting) "Family Tree" web sites, for individual families, I will 
post the web sites under the "note" section of that individual.
Do you have ancestors pictures that can be posted to our family tree site?
