I am researching my heritage through the four main branches of my family, WEAVER, HOWARD, JAMES, LONG. The quest, never ending, has provided a profound insight into how these families were building blocks of this great nation. The research has been long, flustrating, joyful, but most of all, rewarding. I have named my Weaver Family History, "Looking To The Past To See The Present". I continuously seek addition and family building blocks to the past, so if I can assist you please ask and if you can add, please provide any information or facts of connecting families where ever we may be scattered. I will be more than willing to share any information which may be of benefit to you.
