If you wish, bring a dish or a non-alcoholic drink to add to the event potluck. Bring your Gedcom files, handwritten notes, and verbal stories to share! We will try to have a small flatbed scanner available to scan photographs, so be sure to bring those, too.
We believe that our ancestors, George EM*ERSON (variations include Emerson, Emberson, Emmerson, etc.) and Esther/Easther ROB*SON (variations include Robinson, Roberson, Robertson, etc.), came from Virginia/South Carolina through Tennessee and into Alabama. Various branches or connections of this family also migrated to counties in Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.
