Genealogy Family Tree and Family History Research for over 100 different surnames
This site contains a listing of over 14,000 individuals and over 10,000 families from over 1,900 separate surnames in my Family Tree data base (of which over 100 are in my grandchildren's direct line). It contains some very well known surnames, including SEARS, ROEBUCK, MONTGOMERY, and WARD (no KMART is not a surname). Also, it has some very well known individuals, including Charlemagne, El Cid, and several kings of England, Germany, Spain, and France. These include William the Conqueror, Richard the Lion Hearted, and Henry VIII. There are also some emperors of the Holy Roman Empire and some of the pilgrims that came over on the Mayflower, including Miles STANDISH, several preachers of God's Holy Word, including Jonathan EDWARDS, and two men who were the first father and son to be the President of the United States. None of these famous people are in my direct line but they do tie in by marriage in some way. They also add interest to the research. This site is dedicated to the research of family history for my grandchildren.
I consider accuracy to be of the utmost importance when documenting our family history. Therefore, I have made every effort to document this information as accurately as possible. However, there is no guarantee that the contents of this site is without error. In many cases, it is necessary to depend upon the research which has been done by others. I have tried to present that information as I found it. Should you have information that disagrees with what I have here, please contact me.
Genealogy is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the U. S. and my wife, Joan, and I have enjoyed trying to solve the puzzles from the past for several years. This hobby and researching family history carried us to 17 different state capitols in less than three years of traveling this great country. We have revisited several of those states several times. The surnames of EDWARDS, HOLDREDGE, KRESS, LILLY, RANBARGER, and STEPHENS have come to be almost as familiar to me as my own ROBERTS name. Indeed, I have traced some of them much further back than I have been able to trace my ROBERTS line.
In addition to the usual list of surnames and family pages, I have included personal pages on everyone in my database, a photo album, a list of sources, some research papers, which I call 'Biographical Sketches', and a tiny tafel report. So be sure to check the Contents Page before getting lost in your surfing. When you click on an individual's name in the index, you will be taken to their "Family Page". To see additional notes, or the source for information on an individual, click on the person's name to go to the "Personal Page". Links to notes and sources for each person are displayed on the Personal Page for that individual. At the bottom of some "Family Pages" are links that will take you to a "Biographical Sketch" or, possibly, a "Pedigree Chart". In some cases, you will then be able to view documents, such as death certificates, and some photos. I hope it is not too confusing. If you get lost, or have any suggestions for better organization, please let me know.
If you are not familiar with the tiny tafel report, check it out. It can be a big help when comparing research data. For an explanation of what the report contains, click on "Description". You can save my tiny tafel and print it out for later reference.
