Tipton/Peters Family Tree Research

Updated June 8, 2011

About Our Family Research


I am focussing on my maternal great-grandmother's family, the Lamberts, as there are Illinois state congressmen (1820's) on that side which need more research. This branch also includes the Spenglers - the branch where everything is already done! - Back to the 2nd Crusade, although their ties to Martin Luther need filling in. I am trying to find just one ancestor here who is *not* from England. I think I may claim WEB duBois (=Woods!) as a relative, since he's dead and he can't deny it. Even duBois would suddenly be trekking back to Lincolnshire and Whatnot, Surrey with a family tree like this. But the real respect: our forebears invaded southern Illinois to force a the free-state vote. (Or is it really an invasion if you happened to move from the Canadian border? Maine isn't so far away!) Oh, politics makes me laugh.
