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.
Quite honestly, I knew that I had "French blood, German blood and Indian
blood", and that's all I knew. I didn't know anything about my husbands "blood", and neither did he. This was one thing that
prompted me to go digging. Another, and the most prompting came from an adoption in our family. So, I started digging. Needless
to say, I didn't find the birth family, yet, but now I have gotten so into genealogy, that there is no turning back.
information was obtained in so many ways that you wouldn't believe it! If you are new to genealogy, your mind would be boggled
at what you can find out, and how you can find it out! Soon, I intend to have a web page with links that I have found helpful
in my research. Public records, web sites, and online help (from real people!). In the course of doing this research, I've
discovered that I have many more relatives than I ever thought possible!
This is a work in progress, so please contact
me if you have anything to correct or add. It's always wonderful when I can help someone else with the work that I've done.
So it is my goal that you can get something out of this site that will help you in your research.
So, happy hunting,
good luck, and if I can help you in any other way, please let me know at email@example.com.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
There are so many people to thank that I can't even begin to say thank you to all the people who helped
me. There are those who helped me learn how to build this site, there are people who supplied pictures of family members
and ancestors, there are people who supplied correct information and, most importantly, there are those who supplied the data.
Truly, you can't do it all yourself. You can not find every little piece of information. Genealogy is about sharing.
In my family file, any information that was given to me by another individual, is listed as such.
But, remember, there are ethics involved with genealogy as well. It is important to give credit where
credit is due. Those people worked hard for that information. Also, I could get on my "speal" about living relatives.
Those people need to be protected. They are alive, and they have families. Someone putting out their information
all over the internet for the whole wide world to see is not safe. Could they find that information out? Of course,
but we don't need to hand it to them on a silver platter.
Okay, on with the fun stuff! Enjoy, and, as always, if you have anything to add or correct, please
contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
