About Our Family Research
The data on my family homepage represents information collected by myself since late in the year 2000. My son had to have his family tree made and when I started looking at the information my mother had collected over the years, I immediately became hooked on genealogy. Living fairly close to the Allen Co. Library in Ft. Wayne, IN, I began most of my research there and expanded to the internet quickly. Since I live in Indiana, I have been able to travel to my ancestors home towns and also do a lot of on-site research. My husband quickly realized the value in my conducting research into his family also. So my search has greatly expanded to include my husband's side also. This past summer, we traveled to Marion, NC on our way to the east coast to visit 3 cemetaries that had relations on my husband's side. Also, in 2003, we have been fortunate to attend a Kerr reunion and a Wilson Reunion.
I am placing it here hoping that my family will be able to view the information themselves and that it might also generate contacts to help me with my research.
