About Our Family Research

With Four sisters and 34 first cousins and all their spouses I started my family tree in 1991. Using only my cousins, aunts uncles and siblings my database quickly grew to over several hundred individuals. I have certain branches back to 1608 France with the Gauthier Name and about the same on the Thibault Name. Two Names that continue to elude my research are the Hunter family of The Arkansas and Oklahoma areas and the Mahnkens of Missouri, Oklahoma and Utah.

My wife is a Smith and researching the name has been a nightmare with very little results. Her mother is Lawrence which recently revealed a line back to England during the colonization of Virginia.

There are several names with missing characters replaced by boxes. This is due to special symbols associated with the French language. If you desire the family tree file send me a request and version of Family Tree Maker you own and I will gladly send it to you. If you use another genealogy program I will gladly send it to you in GEDCOM format.
Please feel free to browse and contact me with any Questions and comments.
