Welcome, thank you for your interest.  On this site you will find the names and a bit about many of my ancestors who indeed ploughed, made necessary things and were useful members of society. In some cases the records go back as many as twelve generations, which are divided into chapters. 

These pages are from my family history book titled, From Whence...which I am adapting to this web site with the hope it will be useful to you who are seeking information and an encouragement for others to share information. 

This web site is dedicated to my ancestors, all of them known and those yet to be found. 

The Introduction is the place to see what information I have and to begin... 
For the background and history of this family search I suggest you read the Preface
