I have just taken over researching my family tree from my late mother. Generally our information concerns her side of the family. She managed to go back 8 generations just by tombstones alone!! I hope to do better with the aid of modern technology - although I am new to the internet as well. The family is from Devon, England and has good Devonian surnames such as Kerslake, Puddepha, Sillifant Didcot and Callacott. Many members of the family went and settled in the United States of America in the 1800s in the Ohio area mostly.
Hopefully I can trace our family line further back and also do some research into my fathers side which as a family history is in its infancy. The family names here are Pizzey, Spice, Morse
