If you have been here before, don't panic <g> you are at the right place, I just decided to give the home page a new look. I haven't been doing to much to this site for the last few months, so thought it was time I did. Enjoy your visit. djc.

As always, if, you find anything here that is still under copyright and should come down, please notify me, and I will remove it until I can obtain the permission. djc.

NOTE: Please remember that we DO NOT "write" these books! All we are doing is transcribing the orginal books, and placing them online so that it "might" assist someone in their search for their ancestors. All books are published BEFORE 1927, most of them are in the middle to late 1800's. So if the information is inaccurate, it is because there has been more recent research that disproves some of the text in these books. I am not a historian, I love history, but only know what I read. I have not done further research to prove or disprove what is written in these historical books, I just read them and transcribe them for your enjoyment and genealogical research. It is up to the individual doing the research to obtain proof, not mine. I also have no further information other that what are in the books.
