Edit Your Page

Well here I go again. For all those who visited my last homepage and seen that I didn't make any changes in quite some time it is because I had to reload EVERYTHING onto my pc again after my brother crashed it and I cannot get back into it to make any changes. So I am trying this again.
Here are the initials I will be using throughout the page:
V - is for verified with legal documents such as birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, court documents and any other legal documents.
NV - is for not verified. I still need verification on these.
MM - is for verication by my mother. She has a very, very good
memory so I do rely heavily on her memory (of which there are many), but everyone makes mistakes and I would like
to someday get legal verification where possible.

This is the list of my family on my father's side that I have so far:
