"MY FAMILY HISTORY" contains a linked Surname List and linked Index of Individuals. Each individual has their own page displaying their dates, linked parents & spouses & children & in-laws, plus Notes and a Photo (indicated by a Notes icon and a Camera icon in the Index for some individuals). The Tree icon beside an individuals name at the top of their page opens their InterneTree. Unfortunately Family Tree Maker limits this file to a maximum of 2000 individuals, and consequently only a fraction of my information can be included. Descendancy Reports listed in the online BOOK may contain more generations and cousin lines.

Personal information of living persons is omitted, but please feel free to contact me for more information. I would love to hear from cousins everywhere, and would be very grateful for any additional information you can add about your connecting family lines.

I LOVE NIT-PICKERS! - Please do tell me about any errors or omissions you find. No detail is too insignificant. I will gladly provide sources of information, please email.

PHOTOS! - Always looking for more photos of everyone in the family. All of the photos displayed at this site have been generously shared with me and I treasure them. Please feel free to copy and share them with as many family members as possible.
