From the hills of eastern Kentucky, and Tennessee to the mountains of Wise County, Virginia our family roots run deep. It is my goal to plant our roots as long and deep as I can into this beautiful place. So many of us have moved away but the ties are so strong that we always come back....

Please join me as we search our past and thus learn more about who we are. We hail from the Melungeons, Scotch, Irish, German and there are many twists and turns in our journey. I am searching the following surnames who all played a part in the settling of these mountains:

Sandlin, Perry, Laney, Dingus, Greear, Hicks, Hall, Mullins, Collins, Lawson just to name a few...
