Welcome to our family Genealogy page.
This is a work in progress. I will be posting info and photos here
on semi regular basis. At least that is the plan.
I am working on both my family history and my wife's. So there will end up being a very large amount of differnt names and people here. Feel free to use what you can from this page. I just ask that you share what you get with others that want it with no strings attached. Also if you see that I am missing something, or would like me to add something, or see something that is incorrect please contact me via email. If you have information that I don't have on this page please contact me, and we can get it posted. I am always looking for new information(stories,dates,locations,etc), and new photos! If you have photos that you are willing to share I only ask for a copy. Scanned photos are great, as are good quality copies/reproductions. If the photo(s) you are willing to share is/are in bad shape I may be able to restore a copied version. Depends on the extent of the damage. The Surnames list is very incomplete, due to the fact that I have almost 5000 individuals in my database, and this site only allows up to 2000 individuals. So if you do not see yourself on there, or do not see an ancestor, look at the reports I have put on this site. These will be updated as often as needed due to additions to my database.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Addendum March 2009: I have called an end to my research. It has been at least 4 yrs since I actively looked into any of it. I will still pass along info if requested, but I will not be posting new material. I became fed up with the negative family politics from certain parts of both my family and my wife's family. I was getting nowhere and felt I was wasting my time, and energy.
Maybe in the future I will revisit my search, but for the forseeable future I am done.
Good Luck to all that continue the search.
