So...now down to business.I've included a 'shortened' version of my tree that is a clickable link...I think on 5000 individuals were uploaded.It's been rather impossible to get everyone...seeing that space here is limited.We've still hit our brickwalls.

I started this project in October 1998 to quell my curiosities about family ties.I started with 10 people and currently have 32,486 in the database and it's growing everyday.I'm always happy to share info:)Just think of my computer as an open book. The other website listed on this page is one I've launched in the hopes of getting all my listed members up on the web.Keep your fingers crossed and I welcome suggestions. There is also a seperate 'personal' website at:
Also, if anyone has knowledge of a Dobbs Association or an association for any of the other surnames, could ya let me know? I do appreciate you stopping by, THANKS!Happy Hunting!
