We started out "Swearingen" family search in April 2001.
Posted a message on GenForum, Karel Whyte answered immediately and helped for several months with our search.
She told us about research materials available and helped us get a bare bones family chart started.
Here are Karel Whyte's "Swearingen Genelogy" pages that are still on the internet.
