My wife, Mary, and I started researching our families' history about two years ago when we realized that we knew very little about our past. Our goal is to bring a sense of pride to our family by giving as much of a history lesson as possible to them. We have encountered some problems with some of our family members holding onto some information that could provide useful, but hopefully we can bypass all of that.
Since we've started we have been able to amass almost 1500 names and we're still not finished. I have several more promising leads to the lines that I have had problems with. Namely the Flatford & Betzler lines. Also, I haven't had the time to put in all the new births and everything so please bear with me. Feel free to contact me about any info you see here and, most of all, have fun with this. This is your history too and you have just as much a right to it as I do.
Love to all,
Garth & Mary Kirkpatrick Jr
