I HAVE SPENT MANY YEARS RESEARCHING MY FAMILY TREE AND HAVE ACTUALLY GOTTEN A LOT FURTHER THAN I WOULD HAVE EVER DREAMED OF.
I STARTED WITH INFORMATION FROM MY PARENTS AND AUNTS AND UNCLES. THE LAMEY BRANCH WAS EASY TO RESEARCH AND FOUND RESULTS PRETTY FAST BECAUSE I HAD ACCESS TO BRADFORD OKEEFE FUNERAL RECORDS IN BILOXI, MS. AND MICROFILM OF OLD NEWSPAPERS THAT DATED PRETTY FAR BACK IN THE GENEALOGY SECTION OF THE BILOXI PUBLIC LIBURARY AND LOTS OF RECORDS ARE FOUND IN THOSE OLD NEWSPAPERS SUCH AS MARRIAGES, DEATHS AND BIRTH ANNOUNCEMENTS. i ALSO HAD ACCESS TO OLD CENSUS RECORDS AT THE SAME LIBUARY. i HAVE BEEN TO DOLPHIN ISLAND,AL. AND BAYOU LA BATRE, AL. WHERE A LOT OF THE OLDER LAMY AND LAMI ANCESTORS ARE BURIED. THERE ARE A LOT OF DIFFERENT SPELLINGS FOR THE LAMEY NAME: I ASSUME THAT IT WAS DUE TO LACK OF EDUCATION BACK IN THE OLD DAYS BECAUSE EVEN IN THE SAME FAMILY I HAVE FOUND THAT A FATHER WOULD BE NAMED LAMY AND HIS SONS LAST NAME WAS LAMIE. i HAVE ALSO GOTTEN PRETTY FAR ON MY GRANDMOTHERS SIDE OF THE FAMILY HER NAME WAS MAMIE SCHONEWITZ AND MY GRANDFATHER WAS OLLIE LEWIS LAMEY SR.
ON MY MOTHERS SIDE OF THE FAMILY I HAVE VERY LITTLE BUT AM STILL RESEARCHING. MY MOMS NAME IS JOYCE FAYE LEE SHE MARRIED OLLIE LEWIS LAMEY JR.
HER PARENTS WERE JEWELL EDNA PARKER AND FLOYD WILLIAM LEE.
JEWELLS PARENTS WERE JOSEPH PARKER AND DALLAS WALTERS BOTH BORN IN BILOXI, MS. IF ANYONE CAN HELP ME WITH THIS FAMILY PLEASE EMAIL ME. FLOYD WILLIAM LEES FATHER WAS THOMAS WILLIAM OR WILLIAM THOMAS LEE WIFE UNKNOW AT THIS TIME. THE LEES AND PARKERS ARE FROM MISSISSIPPI BUT I DONT KNOW WHERE THEY MAY BE FROM BEFORE THE ANCESTORS THAT I HAVE TRACED THEM BACK TO.
