Alert: I am open to corrections. This research has mistakes, I have learned along the way, don't we all? I therefore welcome corrections and additions. Please feel free to contact me by email if you wish.

Hello there, Welcome to my site!! This site is a work in progress. What I know so far is all here on these pages. All the information here may not be correct, as I am constantly undergoing research.

I hope that you are enjoying your search as much as I have.
I have focused on the following families mainly and have 12,240+ names in my GEDCOM. Seagraves/Strickland/Chandler/ Culbertson/Freeman/Gregersen/Koenig. I have our Chandler family to the immigrant ancestor John in 1599, Jamestown Virginia. Stricklands to Sir Thomas Strickland of England 1563. Culbertsons to Andrew Culbertson 1612 of Scotland. Seagraves to John and possibly to Jacob 1730 in Wake Co. NC. Freemans to John Freeman b. 1650 abt. in possibly England. And a Strickland Grandmothers family back to Rev. Robert Bracewell to 1563 England. Gregersen to Gregers Nielsen in 1654 Denmark as well.
Any questions regarding living individuals can be directed to me. Some may not be living, as rootsweb cleaned the file.

Good luck in your searches!!

Dear Ancestor,

Your tombstone stands among the rest, Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out, On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care, It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist, You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you, In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse, Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled One hundred years ago,
Spreads out among the ones you left Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you.

I started out calmly, tracing my tree,
To find if I could find the makings of me.
And all that I had was Great-grandfather's name,
not knowing his wife or from where he came.
I chased him across a long line of states,
And came up with pages and pages of dates.
When all put together, it made me forlorn,
Proved poor Great-grandpa had never been born.
One day I was sure the truth I had found,
Determined to turn this whole thing upside down.
I looked up the record of one Uncle John,
But then I found the old man to be younger than his
Then when my hopes were fast growing dim,
I came across records that must have been him.
The facts I collected made me quite sad,
Dear old Great grandfather was never a Dad.
I think someone is pulling my leg,
I am not at all sure I wasn't hatched from an egg.
After hundreds of dollars I've spent on my tree,
I can't help but wonder if I'm really me
