There has been a lot happen in the last year or so that got me started doing this search for our ancestors. My grandmother died last March and my husband and I had a little surprise a couple months later. Surprise your pregnant with number three! Talk about a heart stopper for a career sales woman. But it was the best thing that could have ever happened to us. I gave up my career to stay home with my children. I have began to realize how important family is.
I was very bored one day when the two youngest were down for their naps and I started looking on the web for information on my childhood favorite writer. Don't ask my why, but I wanted to know more about Laura Ingall Wilder. Then it hit me why not find out more about our family. So the search began.
There were rumors in the family that we were related to famous people. Well I have been able to prove one. My husband IS a descendant of Jesse Chisholm. His great great grandmother is Mary V Chisholm. However, I am still on the search for the rumor in my family that I am related to Daniel Boone. I remember from a young age my grandmother telling me that. She also told me the family lineage had been researched by an aunt, but that the book she had done had been burned in a fire. So I hope that I can uncover our family history again.
Our family is scatered all over the place from CA, ID, WA, OK, AZ and other places. So I hope with this website we can all piece together our past and share it with each other. This is a work in progress if you see any mistakes or have more information to add please email me and let me know.
Here are some of my favorite websites:
