A special THANK
YOU to all of our veterans and service men out there!!
God Bless you and keep you safe.
visit my family veterans page where
I pay tribute to all of our family members who have served this
great country, and some who paid the ultimate price for the
freedom we enjoy today.
NOTE: These pages are in major need of updating!!! I am slowly working on these changes and will post the updated pages on the What's New page. ~ Thank you.
you for stopping by my little space in the cyber world. What
you will find here is a hodge-podge of geneological information
which I have collected over the years. Most of it connects in
some way to my own research or interests.
may (or may not) ask why did I start doing research on my ancestors?
Well it was curiosity. My mother-in-law gave us her father's photo
albums. Her father, Leon
G. Engleman, was killed in WWII when she was very little and
no one really knew much about him. That's what started my quest,
I found my first bit of information on July 7, 1997 when I called
a wonderful lady at the Lehigh County Historical Society and she
was able to give me information on Leon including the date he
enlisted and his service#. That was all it took, I was hooked,
and there was no stopping me.
tried to do my research very carefully and to document everything.
One mistake I made early on was not documenting enough. So my
advice to anyone is write everything down, no matter how trivial
it may seem at the time. Document who, where, and when you found
every bit of information. You will be glad you did!
be happy to answer any questions regarding the families on these
pages. I also welcome your comments, corrections and additions
to any information you find here. I would encourage you to verify
any information you find on these pages .(Or any information you
find on the web for that matter!)
this web site is dedicated to the memory of Leon and all those
ancestors lost in time.
Lost that is until I find them : )
it or not I actually do have other interests outside of geneology......REALLY
