This is somewhat of a new venture for me. I've never attempted anything like this before, and since most of my relatives have gone off to another world, it's going to be difficult for me to find out WHO I am and WHERE I come from.
I'm not out to find any major historical figures in my bloodline, I'm just trying to find out about my family's history. The unfortunate thing about life is, that for the most part, many families "family tree's" have a LOT of branches. Divorces and re-marriages make it difficult to find out information on your blood relatives, since for the most part, your parents try to forget their "mistakes" and move on to their new lives with their new partners. That makes it difficult to get accurate information.
But I have to say, from what I have to work with, and some great information I've come across (mostly on pure luck), I've received some good leads on my family history. Mostly, from the pain-staking research of my Aunt Margie.
So here it is, my work in progress, of my family tree, relatives that I know about, and people I've never had the chance to meet. Hopefully, someone is going to come across this and find out that they have a distant relative they didn't know about before.
At least, that's my hope.
