It was so nice of you to stop by and to visit my Homepage for a little while. I think you will enjoy your stay, because I want to share with you a little about what my life has been and where I am headed as I continue that sojourn here in this life. My name is Jack Drake.I live in Lowell, Arkansas, which is located in the Northwest part of Arkansas. Beaver Lake is only two miles from where I live. It is a beautiful lake where fish are abundant. The White River is the water flow that furnishes not only Beaver Lake, but three others lakes downstream with enough water to keep the lakes filled to the power level stage. The waterfall in the upper right of this page is a replica of the waterfall found about twenty miles north east of where I live. It flows downstream and empties into Beaver Lake.
People come from all parts of the nation to spend recreational time on the lake, fishing, swimming, water ski and camping. There is also a huge craft fair that takes place at War Eagle Mill each year in October. At this time, the trees have begun to take on their fall colors. The mountains in and around our area look like huge bouquets of flowers with their mixed colors of yellow, red, orange and brown with a background of green pines and spruce. The beautiful War Eagle River winds it's way around through the mountains, until it empties into Beaver Lake.
Branson, Missouri is only a couple of hours from here. It is quickly becoming the entertainment capital of Mid-America. Many of the top entertainers have built their homes there now, and have their own theaters. Their lives have been changed dramatically, because they can now work two shows daily, (which is about six hours per day), and then they enjoy being in their own homes and sleeping in their own bed every night. Sure beats being on the road the year round and sleeping in hotels and motels, and eating in restaurants. Their performances have improved because of the relaxed environment they now live in. Most of the theaters close after the Christmas programs have concluded. They remain closed until the following March.
If you are interested in creating a homepage, I would like for you to visit, My Favorite Links. There is some good infomation on getting started. HTML, Animated Icons, Bars, buttons, etc.
You can go directly to any page in the Genealogy Pages, including MY Homepage, by clicking that particular button below. This will make it more convenient for you as you search the pages and find some of your own relatives on certain pages. You can camp on any page and view every page from that location. There is a framed format like the one below on every page, so no matter where you are in your review of these pages, you can quickly move to other pages. I've added three SURNAME buttons to the list below for quick references to your lines. If you leave this page, you can return right back to these same selection buttons by clicking on the "Back" button on the Toolbar. Good hunting. Oh Yeah! Check out my new Genealogy Links and Photopage.
Now that you're exhausted from searching these pages out for your ancestors and come up empty handed, Click on the button Ancestor Search below, and maybe you'll get a new shot at finding them. It searches multiple genealogical databases from one site. Simply fill in an ancestor's name, click on which of the seven databases you wish to search and then MultiGen does the search for you. To search the additional databases simply click BACK in your Web browser and then click on the next database in the list. Databases included are: Ancestry.com, Family Tree Maker, Gendex, Genealogy.com, JewishGenFamilyFinder, Kindred Korrections, and LDS Family Search.
One last thing, you can see some of the photos of the members of the Drake Genealogy list by clicking on that button on the selection buttons below. Roy Andrews, who maintains the Drake Genealogy information, has so graciously agreed to keep these photos along with all the other Drake information on his website. Thanks again Roy.
