Search billions of records on

Welcome!!   Years ago when I decided to find my father's family, I never thought that my research would become so addicting.. And of course I couldn't stick with just my father's family.  I've met so many wonderful cousins and friends that I would have otherwise never had the privilege of knowing. So many people have contributed to this research and I would like to thank all who have given of their time and resources.  My appreciation is never ending.

Although I have tried to maintain sources and confirm my data, I'm sure there are some errors. This is definitely a work in progress and I welcome comments or corrections. Please contact me with any corrections you may have or any questions you may have.

My research has been far reaching but I've chosen to list only my direct line (with just a couple of exceptions).  The reason behind this is accuracy.  So much data on the internet is incorrect because people just copy from someone else without confiming any sources.  I prefer to share what I have documented myself.  True genealogy includes the facts that go along with it, not just the names and dates.  If you do use it, please give credit.  Much time and money has been spent compiling everything.

Check out the names and who knows...maybe we're cousins!!
