About The Curnow-Cross Family
My father began researching our family genealogy in the mid-1990s. He kept a notebook with a  picture of PorthCurno (Port of Cornwall) on the front cover. I looked at the book often and told  myself that one day I would pick up where my father had left off, and so I dedicate this website to  him, William Curnow (1926-2012), in his loving memory.

When my Uncle Alan died in January of 2010 my father, mother, husband, and I traveled to Lancaster  for his memorial service. There I reconnected with my cousins Bill and Barbara. It was as if no time  had passed. There we were, talking about old times: the annual Fourth of July family reunion at  Stokes Mill, swimming in the creek, Grandma's delicious pies, the large galvanized tub with blocks  of ice chilling bottles of A-Treat soda, and so much more.

That week my cousin Bill invited me to his TribalPages website so that I could add the details of  my family's history. I began adding the information my father had gathered and then began some  research of my own. I was hooked! Even finding the smallest new detail was a treasure. Somehow  discovering the house number or street name of a place one of my ancestors had lived long ago made  them seem alive to me. Some discoveries would bring a smile to my face.  Others tears to my eyes.

In June of 2005 my parents returned to Pennsylvania after living in Rhode Island. During that move  I found a box of 35mm slides taken when my sisters and I were kids. Working on this website  prompted me to begin the project of scanning these slides and selecting some of my favorites for  my page. Sharing these images and my website with Mom & Dad brought them so much joy. I hope  that visitors to my page will find some enjoyment as well.
