Welcome to the Ramey, Wells, Belcher, Chaney, and May Genealogy Research Website
I am in the process of updating all links and repairing some.
let me know if you find one not working right.posted April,18, 2013
This is a free genealogy RESEARCH website.
It is NOT presented in gedcom form or a family tree file.
The information is continually changing and updating.
This research is for the purpose of gathering and presenting research on our ancestors from all sources.
Use it as a guide only.
From 1850 on Census records started having all family names and before that we relied on military records, family bibles, and land records.
If we have research listed other than in America and what we have done ourselves, that information , as well as all on this website, is still being researched, documented, and proven.
If you have anything to add or changes to make, let us know in a friendly manner.
DONT TAKE EVERYTHING YOU FIND ON THIS SITE OR ANY GENEALOGY SITE ON THE WEB AT FACE VALUE, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND GATHER YOUR OWN DOCUMENTATION.
If a link takes you to geocities website then it no longer works. geocities stopped hosting. I am in the process of trying to update all the geocities information that was posted on it. patience is the key. sending that link to the page in an email to me would help a lot.
On occassion we receive an interesting email from another researcher
this email came from France from one of our Remy distant cousins.:
The Remi (also spelled Remy in current
French) was a Belgae Celtic tribe back at the time of
Julius Caesar and before (about 600 B.C.) when the
Celts were the dominant people culture of Europe.
They even fought the Athenians. Being on by Germany's
border, they were really squeezed during Caesar's
wars with the Allemagnae, a fierce German tribe that
was never conquered by Rome. Maybe that is why a
lot of the Remy moved!!!
The capital of the Remy was Rheims (how they got
Rheims is still a mystery since all of the letters are
transposed. Rheims was the home of St. Remy who
baptized Clovis, the father of Charlemagne. Yes, the
are older than France itself. Napoleon and most kings
were crowned in Rheims. Great cathedral still there.
My family, like all Remy, originated from Lorraine
(Metz, etc.) the home of the Beast of Lorraine. A
recent movie was made of that and most churches
in Lorraine have a shrine or picture of the Beast...myth
or true? An old legend.
The Remy river was the Moselle in Metz, Lorraine.
Like all Celtic tribes, we migrated throughout France
Germany and Switzerland who ad their own Celts, the
Helvatiae. We are a proud part of Lorraine and France
to this day. Humility is our greatest characteristic!!!!!
I hope that this helps. Lorraine and its neighbor
Alsace are beautiful places to visit. I still have
a sister in Metz.
Vive Les Remy,
