This website is dedicated to all those in our families who have walked before
us...Those who have fought against harsh winters in log cabins, those who
have travelled the oceans in search of a new life, those who have suffered
through depressions and recessions and floods and wars. If it were not for
these people, we would not be who we are today.
It may sound corney, but the thousands of hours we spend on finding our
roots is a gift. It is a gift to all of our children, to their children and to
their children's children. A very wise person once said that "One cannot
possibly know where they are headed in life if they don't know from whence
This is an all encompassing project, not just limited to "direct lineage".
Tracing only those people in our direct ancestry would be like watching only
the scenes in a movie that had the starring actors/actresses in them. It is
the other players, the aunts, the uncles, the cousins, the in-laws that make
the story real and interesting. These are their stories--stories which each
following generation adds to, builds on, and hopefully learns from. As you
read the stories of their lives, keep in mind these are real people, not just a
group of vital statistics -- people who have laughed and cried, known the joy
of birth and the emptiness of death, who have known both love and lonliness.
This is an ongoing project - by no means complete. Check back often
how we are progressing. And don't hesitate to "leaf" your mark behind. If
you have information, corrections or questions, PLEASE drop us an email. The
sharing of information is critial to this and every other genealogical journey.
Big Thanks To: All those who have contributed to this project.
connected and reconnected with cousins, aunts, uncles and friends who have
made this possible. It is because of the hard work they have put in that you
are able to see life through the eyes of those who have gone before us. I
have gladly taken on the role of "clearing house" to present not only our work,
but that of Nell, Carl, Elsie, Jo Ann, Jim, Gayle and everyone else who added
branches and leaves to our tree.
