About Our Family Research


Welcome to our family site. Our family research and online journey, covers territories of Virgina, Texas, California, Oklahoma, I.T. Oklahoma, Iowa, and Colorado. We have researched information from slavery to the present date.

Throughout the research, we have found that our multicultural ancestors (African American, Native American, White American) have contributed a wide variety of talents that are historically known in American culture today.
