Welcome! I'm a Hilliard from Kansas and have begun to research my family tree. I decided to create this website to share what I have found so far.
Surnames in my ancestry (in alphabetical order):
DAVY, GETZ (or GOETZ), GRAUSSE, HILLIARD, RYAN, SOLDIN, THOMAS
Surnames of cousins -- some distant, some not-so:
COCHRAN, GRANT, MCGOWAN, MCGUIRE, MILLER, ROBINSON
More cousins whose surnames I know, but haven't yet listed (so contact me for more info):
ARATA, KNAUER, O'CONNOR, SWART
I've been able to trace the Hilliard family back to 1800, the birth of John Hilliard in Ireland, and am currently researching his siblings, one of whom is named William.
Other branches of my family tree I am currently researching are:
Ryan (NY, NJ) Soldin(NY, NJ) Thomas(KS, OH, PA)
