I have been researching my family history since 1996. What started as a quest to learn more about my ancestors, has expanded to include my husband's ancestors as well. The information contained within our ever-expanding family tree has been derived from others researching the family surnames, family documents, census records, marriage records, birth and death records, immigration lists, and military service records. Along the way, I have found family branches and relatives we didn't know existed, many distant cousins across the US, and many new friends who share the same passion for genealogy.
This is still very much a work in progress and will be updated as new information is documented. As any dedicated researcher knows, the process has been difficult at times, but it has always been a labor of love.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed information in my quest to learn more about our family.
