This is a project in the works. This is my all family tree including the families of those married into my direct line. I call it the Ralph E Downs trunk because he is the point at which I knew everything to the present day and have been researching and adding everything before him. It also makes an easy filename RED.
I want to acknowledge the help from Donna Baumann who provided my data beyond my great-grandfather, George G. Downs. Her ggggrandfather (Jacob) and my gggrandfather (Thomas B.) were brothers.
This site was originally loaded on June 22 as a test. The file is still raw, as are my skills with Family Tree Maker. I apologize for any newbie mistakes and rest assured, if they exist, they will soon be replaced.
My line is Michael Hackman (self), Sandra Jo Downs, Ralph Emerson Downs Sr., George Greene Downs, Thomas B. Downs, Andrew Downs. As I said before, this is an ALL family tree including any known trees of those related which I have come across. I will credit the work of those from whom I have received info as I post it. Presently that is Donna Baumann. She has also sent me a link to a web page of Delbert Spencer. The top of my line (Andrew) married Eleanor Spencer so I will be including some of their line also. I am giving him the credit now so I don't have to rewrite this.
