About Our Family Research
I have several family lines I am searching for. On my mothers, maternal side we have the Presgroves, Piggott, Mulvaneys to name a few. My Aunt Dorothy from Georgia brought me alot of new info on the family. I am really excited to have it. I can hardly wait to dig through it. On my mothers paternal side are the Piggotts, Jones,to name a few. On my fathers side I don't have much info. His father is from Norway and his mother is from Minnesota, but I don't know her maiden name yet so I haven't been able to find any info about her. On my husbands paternal side are the Wright's. His grandmother told me his grandfather was 4th cousin to Orville & Wilbur Wright. I would like to find the connection. She was born in New York and her parents were from Bohemia. Her maiden name is Hnizdo. I am hoping to find out more about them. On his maternal side his mother was born in Hawaii, her maiden name was Chang. Her father had escaped from China. Her mother was full blooded Hawaiian. I recently had the opportunity to talk to some family members that we had not seen for a longtime. They are suppose to e-mail me any info they have on the family.
