THE KEELING'S FROM ILLINOIS

Updated March 17, 2006

About Our Family Research


MY FATHER CARL JACK KEELING, BORN NOVEMBER 10 1920,(Parents WERE CLARE S KEELING AND NELLIE MAE MANN). MY DAD LOST HIS LIFE IN WW11, BEFORE I WAS BORN. MY SISTER BROTHER AND MYSELF GREW UP NOT KNOWING MUCH ABOUT HIM OR HIS FAMILY. OVER THE YEARS MY MOTHER MANANGED TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH ONE OF HIS BROTHERS AND HIS FAMILY. IT WAS IN 1998 I WAS TALKING WITH MY COUSIN CLARE KEELING,HE MENTIONED THAT HE HAD DONE SOME RESEARCH ON OUR FAMILY BUT HAD NOT GOTTEN VERY FAR WITH IT. IT WAS AT THIS TIME I DECIDED TO DO THIS RESEARCH MYSELF. I HAD VERY LITTLE INFORMATION ON THE KEELING FAMILY, EXCEPT WHERE HE WAS BORN AND A BIRTH DATE. I KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO BE QUITE A CHALLENGE FOR ME,ONCE I SENT FOR HIS BIRTH CERTIFICATE, INFORMATION STARTED FLOWING. WHAT I HAVE DISCOVERED THUS FAR I CHERISH. I'LL CONTINUE ON WITH MY RESEARCH, TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MY KEELING HERITAGE.
