This site covers the family genealogies of my parents - three surnames Hartsock or Hartsook, Ball, and Chaney, with many collateral branches.|
The Hartsook/Ball Family Genealogy site, was created to share accurate genealogy information on all the lines I have researched, with others who may be researching the same lines. A great interest to me, and hopefully to others, the history of Oregon. I have included indirect family lines, all with one common link, all were early pioneers to Oregon.
To quote from a book I read once, "Rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief, Doctor, lawyer, merchant, chief, Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor"... And Butcher, baker, candlestick maker -- in our family we've had them all, including assorted farmers, carpenters, preachers, clothiers, wives, mothers, union soldiers, confederate soldiers, revolutionarily patriots, government officials and at least one bachelor. They have all contributed to the genetic pool that has influenced all generations that followed. Understanding our ancestors may help us to know ourselves better, to give us a sense of identity. Whether we like it or not, we are the result of our heritage. What we do with it is up to us.
