"it's about family connections and family history "
W elcome to our family history and genealogy project. The purpose of this website is to preserve our family histories, to offer family members a place to share family stories and data, and to provide resources for genealogy research. No matter how distantly related, please join us and contribute your family history.

In most dictionaries, genealogy is defined as the study, research, and documention of family history and family lineages. That definition is technically true, but it misses the mark. For most of us, genealogy is about the discovery of who we are and where we came from. For, in fact, we are made of the stuff of our ancestors. Their lives, trials, and triumphs lead directly to us. The search for our roots is a great drama and mystery, one that is highly personal, often emotional, and one that is more intriguing than the best film or novel.
Here at this website, we go beyond compiling the genealogies of all of our families. Where possible, we provide genealogy source documents, photos, and even biographies. We have also included some research documents, and we hope to add more. We hope you will join us in this effort and send us information about your father, mother, grandfather, or grandmother (and their ancestors) so that in years to come your son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter, and their children can get a glimpse of their past.

T his genealogy website was first launched in December 2006. New genealogy webpages and information are being added every week. So check back frequently. We are a little different than most family history websites because we document many surnames not just one surname.
O ur audaucious plan is to eventually document the genealogy of all family and allied family lineages. Therefore, all family branches and lineages are important. This website contains source documentation and copies of primary source records.
