This paragraph is new in 2011! Thanks to my daughter Megan who is a genealogy researcher, we have been able to add ancestors to the Rodgers [Rogers]/ Stevens [Stephens] base and as soon as I can figure out how to do books on this new 'improved' program I will add it to the Rodgers/Rogers book! In the meantime, I will upload new pix for you to peruse with the names of those 'new' ancestors!
My database contains approx. 78,000+ names of our family! There are a majority of them included here.Included are love stories, war heroes, presidents and mysteries.
All documentation on my facts, appears in the 'notes for' sections after the person's name.Documentation is a slow process but more is being added on a daily basis. Documentation comes in several forms [i.e., census records, court records, newspaper articles, government land grant documents, and some from other researchers such as MAUD HORN'S "Atchley Family History", 2nd edition].
Documented or not, please use this only as a matter of reference and continue to do your own research!Researchers are not infallible and mistakes are common!
Keep checking back regularly as I will be constantly adding new information as well as some reports and photos of our ancestors!

IMPORTANT NOTE:Please use any and all information as a jumping off place or a hint for your own research!I'm positive that there are mistakes, omissions, additions andassumptions which others will correct as time goes by and I am eager to hear from any and all who have such corrections.However, I will only make those corrections if they are accompanyed by documentation or after I have been able to make verification myself.
