About Our Family Research

This is my first try at Genealogy research, and I have been working on it for about a year. My Opa Larry, (Grandfather L.R. Michener) died recently, and I decided to do this for him (it really feels like WITH him sometimes). Anyway, I have over a thousand names now, and the only brick wall seems to be in my Michener line! (John, Robert, Thomas in England). Michener is not a British name. As I have been looking at a zillion gedcoms and trees,(Thank you everybody out there), I have noticed that not many have this particular line, i.e. from John Michener (1656)to William to Joseph to Amos to Benjamin to Lawrence to George to Everett to My Grandpa, Lawrence. In a copy of Micheners in America that Anna Shaddinger sent to him a long time ago,she wrote that she still sought our line.
Anyway, hopefully this will do for a first try.
