I have been researching my family tree since i was 15 yrs. old. There seemed to be lots of different versions of who we are and where we came. I have spent alot of time at the local libraries and surrounding town halls, graveyards, and with family and have compiled a family bible for the family to see at any time. I hope that when it is complete it can be passed down for generations. The internet has been a great help in this process. I have met many family members that i did not know i had. This process has been very exciting. When complete i will have a family reunion and it will be posted.
