Family History became important to me when I became pregnant with my daughter, Tiffany, 27 years ago. Waking up one day I realized that there would be a large number of family members that my children & grandchildren would never meet. So I began talking to the elders in the family to get as much information as I could. By the time my son, Nathan, was born 3 years later I thought I had made a substantial dent in listing our Ancestory. Boy was I wrong! So I have become the keeper of family history for some parts of my enormus family. Getting information from family members is one of the most difficult task I have ever undertaken; but I refuse to give up. Where you came from is something everyone should be entitled to know! Now, with a large number of family and friends on the WEB, I thought I might try getting my information this way and I pray you will all assist me in my search for the truth of where we are from!
Some of the surnames in our large family are: Fitzgerald, Woodson, Anderson, Matthews, Beach, VanHorn, Ransom, Warner, Reilly, Pruitt, Woodard, Lomax, Brunson, O'Neil, Vorhees, and many others. We seem to have originaged in Virginia and landed in New Jersey with many living in Penna and New York; but we have merged to all over the country. We are African American (?), Blackfoot Indian, Cherokee Indian, Negro, Portguese, Irish and who knows what else! If you think you may be a relative, please feel free to contact me and we will figure it out.
Always remember that, "FAMILY IS KNOWING WHO YOU ARE & WHERE YOU CAME FROM"; and, "SHARING FAMILY & FRIENDS IS THE JOURNEY OF LIFE"!!!!!
