This crusade began as I opened the family Bible, looking at important "hand written," recorded events and dates...Of course this should not undermind the hundreds of photographs and funeral programs that my Mother has so dilegently protected over the course of the 60 years she has been married to my father.
Information and priceless keepsakes...treasures that were intrusted in her care, as she alone could grasp and understand the value and importance of protecting these bits of history and memories.
The research has had barriers on both sides; but everyday something new and exciting about the family genealogy is discovered!
So as you look at this website, possibly gathering missing links or bits of information as I have...any help or insight you might be able to share will be greatly appreciated. Who knows, these names might connect a piece of your own family tree.
Only to mention a few.
My Father's ancestors stretch back hundreds of years as does my Mother's...so as you look at the names recorded...please share with me. I have only scaled the surface and feel confident that someone out there can help direct me in connecting the links.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Pictures and additional memories to come...
