Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little.
This site is an attempt to record what I've learned about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered
all over the country, if not the world. One of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though
we live far apart.
I began my research in 2005.
Well, actually before then. But it really started to get some where this year when I got a job at Ladson Genealogical Library.
I had a lot of information to start with. Others had done research and I was able to go beyond and sometimes far beyond what
they had found. Some of this information was probably obtained from talking to living relatives and from researching public
records. In the course of doing this research, I've discovered that I have many more relatives than I ever thought possible!
Various family members had researched
the respected family trees. I was able to take what they had and go farther with it. In some cases far beyond what they had.
Part of the blessing in being able to research it to a bigger depth was that I had the opportunity to work at the Ladson Genealogical
Library. When I wasn’t busy aiding a patron in their own search, I would research over information that would lead me
to connections. The other part was that I had resources such as the Internet and online information to help me farther the
is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture.
