Come in and make yourself comfortable. I hope you find assistance and information to help your search. I have been researching my ancestors for over 8 years and happily my mother, who began researching her family over 25 years ago and who has amassed more than a roomful of documents, pictures, and the like, has helped me tremendously by sharing not only her documents and stuff, but her memories as well.
Information from my family database has been added to WorldConnect at Rootsweb. Happy hunting! Please contact me if you find someone and would like more information. If I have more, I will be happy to share it with you. As an aside, if you have not yet added your family data to this site, please consider doing so. It is a terrific, free tool for us all.
This page has become too long so I have taken each of the family lines for which I have information and given each a page of its own. I hope this makes your visit more enjoyable.
P. S. When you're ready to take a quick break, visit my crafts page and browse a bit before coming back and diggin' in.
January 2008 Update -- it has been several years since I have been able to spend time researching. I hope to begin again this year and if not, I plan to add more documents and a couple of books that are no longer copyrighted to my family files. I will be updating my family database with information provided by family members researching specific lines I am not. All of this will take some time. Thank you for your patience.
My Family Lines
I am researching these family lines. Some are farther along than others. Each contains a description of the family's timeline as well as links to each family's Bits and Pieces, my family database, as well as other data and information, and links to pages relating to the same surnames.
My Bits and Pieces links include index information I've picked up along the way. Some of the information applies to my lines, some does not. I have tried to include enough information for you to obtain a copy of the original document from its source.
Whether we share "roots," our interest in genealogy, or you just like my page, I would enjoy hearing from you.
This index is from an old (1850 to 1918) title abstract book relating to a piece of property in San Francisco, California. It was found in an empty apartment in Washington state. The apartment had been vacated via a "midnight move." We have been unsuccessful in our attempts to find the owner. So, until an "owner" comes forward, I am keeping the book and have transcribed the index. Here's hoping you find one of your ancestors! If you find something here and would like more information, please e-mail me.
This book includes not only the history of the Baptist Church as it was established in the state of Indiana, but also includes biographical sketches. Included are both white and black churches which were established during this time period.
There's a lot of help for "newbies" wanting to write their own genealogy homepages here:
Over 12,000 visitors arrived between March 2, 1997 and February 15, 2003.
