Welcome to my Home page. I hope you can find what information you need and hopefully, share with me, what I do not have.
This information has been gathered from several years of research and information, much, which was passed on to me by many different family members. I have not verified all of the information on this tree so you must take it and verify for yourself. There may be mistakes, but I have tried to make sure that most of what I have gathered is correct. This tree is a workin progress. I will update it whenever I have new or corrected information.
There are over 450 different surnames in my tree and over 1900 individual names. The main Family names I have been branching off of are PAULSEN, ALVERSON, EMERSON, POLING, BROOKS, REEVES, WALLACE and HUMPHREY of the MICHAEL HUMPHREY lineage.
I have started a book on the Brooks family and will share this with you in the near future. The first print for Family members was printed in July 2004. Only three main characters were focused upon but many very interesting facts were discovered. Much of the information I used was from a Diary from George Brooks and his son Charles E. Brooks from the late 1800's. Other information was gleaned from a small family history put together by Francena Brooks (Johnson)the wife of George E Brooks Jr. This was put together in 1949.
Good luck in your research, and please contact me if you find any connections. I would love to add more names of cousins onto my family list.
