Lambert - Isom Genealogy Home PageUpdated February 4, 2003
|Much of the geneology research for these families was begun by my mother, Martha Isom Lambert, in the 1960's and 1970's.|
Compiling records by hand was difficult (especially when corrections had to be made).
In researching the LAMBERT FAMILY(my father's family), she was happy to learn that there was a Lambert/Lamberth Association.She subscribed to the newsletter, and the very first copy she received had a picture of my Great-Great-Grandfather on the cover.This association aided her research greatly.
Her own family, the ISOM FAMILY, proved to be the more difficult project.After a couple of years of digging thru old documents and interviewing elderly relations, she happened upon two individuals who were instrumental in bridging the gaps in her information...Mrs. Ethel Hanks and Mr. Alvin Lambert."Mrs. Ethel" was a cousin of my Great-Grandfather Isom and had lived in the Athens, AL area all of her life.She had a wealth of old records and stories to share."Mr. Alvin" had become interested in his ancestory when he learned he was adopted....he'd spent years researching his family and was eager to share the Isom information and find new relatives!
Mother was always worred about losing the information via fire, flood, etc.So she made copies and distributed among her brothers, sisters, aunts and uncles.She did lose much of her data during a flood in the 1980's.Fortunately, Betty Isom Hester (see link) retrieved most of it from other family members and organized the written info on the computer.MANY THANKS TO BETTY!
While the majority of the Isom and Lambert family has been documented, much of the Clement/Nunn information is gathered from other sources (including German's Geneology Page listed below).Debbie Roberts of Crittenden County, KY saw a request for info on the Clement family and was kind enough to send me this source and info from the Crittenden County Historical Records.
I hope the information is helpful to you....it will be revised as I make other "finds".
