Welcome to my family. Of the 38,430 names listed herein, about 1646 (4.3%) are thanks to the extensive research done by my aunt Georgia Melhorn of Oliver Springs, TN. Her research was the inspiration and motivation of my own. A thousand names or so are from inquiries to family members and responses to email messages or researched obituaries. The balance are from successfully connecting my family tree to other's already listed somewhere on the internet.
This is a work in progress.
My eventual goal is to list every family member's complete information if it is at all possible to obtain the data. This I am doing for both my side of the family as well as my wife's. I've already reached many roadblocks going up several trees, but am finding the occasional inroad by contacting family members by email.
As for spelling:
If you cannot find an individual using the expected spelling, please try using an alternate spelling. For example:
EXPECTED: Melhorn; TRY ALSO: Mehlhorn;
EXPECTED: Bowling; TRY ALSO: Bolling, Bolen, Bowlin
EXPECTED: Lyles; TRY ALSO: Liles
If you see any data errors, or would like to help supplement this project (or for ANY reason whatsoever), please feel free to contact me.
I have just discovered that the database is so large the tree will not open. I will attempt to rectify this with Genealogy.com and will update when corrected.
