This paragraph is new in 2011! Thanks to my daughter Megan who is a genealogy researcher, we have been able to add ancestors to the Rodgers [Rogers]/ Stevens [Stephens] base and as soon as I can figure out how to do books on this new 'improved' program I will add it to the Rodgers/Rogers book! In the meantime, I will upload new pix for you to peruse with the names of those 'new' ancestors!
My database contains approx. 78,000+ names of our family! There are a majority of them included here. Included are love stories, war heroes, presidents and mysteries.
All documentation on my facts, appears in the 'notes for' sections after the person's name. Documentation is a slow process but more is being added on a daily basis. Documentation comes in several forms [i.e., census records, court records, newspaper articles, government land grant documents, and some from other researchers such as MAUD HORN'S "Atchley Family History", 2nd edition].
Documented or not, please use this only as a matter of reference and continue to do your own research! Researchers are not infallible and mistakes are common!
Keep checking back regularly as I will be constantly adding new information as well as some reports and photos of our ancestors!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please use any and all information as a jumping off place or a hint for your own research! I'm positive that there are mistakes, omissions, additions and assumptions which others will correct as time goes by and I am eager to hear from any and all who have such corrections. However, I will only make those corrections if they are accompanyed by documentation or after I have been able to make verification myself.
