Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.

About Our Family Research
Our family research is just beginning. Our original goal is to try and find out which one of our ancesters were the first ones in our family to come to America. At this point in our research, we have been very successful gathering credible information going back to the third generation. We do have some very basic information on some fourth and fifth generation families such as names and birthplace only. At this point in our research we have been able to name 13 families with 57 names associated with those families. As of now (Jan2002),we have been able to pinpoint either Ireland or Canada as the point of immigration for those relatives who came to America. Hopefully, by adding our research to The World Family Tree and sharing with other researchers what we know, we can add to our research and maybe help someone else too. We would like to dedicate our home page to the memory of our relatives who left their homes in Europe and Canada to start a new life for themselves and their families in America. In addition, we would also like to dedicate our research to all of the researchers, past and yet to come, without whose knowledge, hard work, expertise, and sharing this family page woud not be possible. Thank you.
