This page has links to family pages and scanned photos & records I have collected for ancestors of Percy Brees and Cornelia Lunde. For information on contacting me, or to link to my tree on Rootsweb to see my data, please check my main home page.
I do not mind at all if you quote things I have written on this site to other family history sites such as your personal tree on Ancestry.com, memorials on FindAGrave, your personal family history pages, etc., but I do ask that you add the link back to the page on my site you got the information from. This is because I am CONSTANTLY updating the site with corrections, additions, photos, records, etc, and I may have changed what is on the page you quoted from. If you add the link, the person can go to my site and check to see if what you quoted is still what it says. THANKS!
