The Family Crests for Davis, Wood and Waldspurger Family
WELCOME TO THE GENEALOGY OF THE WOOD, WALDSPURGER, KOLEK AND EXTENDED FAMILIES! I have been working on genealogy research off and on since the summer of 1999, when my mother's first cousin (an amateur genealogist herself) got me hooked onto the idea by giving me a simple little list of ancestors she had made. Since then, I have gathered many hundreds of relatives and ancestors, as well as some history behind them and the places that they have been. I am now venturing into my husband's genealogy as well and am helping others who have started to do their own research as well as researching extended branches of different trees.
There are no living individuals to my knowledge in this website nor in the databases listed below (unless I have received permission from that individual). If you find that your name is one of those places (other than saying "LIVING") and you want it removed, please contact me and I will try to remove it immediately.
