While the above names and locations represent only those of the direct ancestral lines, I do research whole families. Feel free to browse through the site and see what might help you in your own family heritage quest. Please note that the names of living individuals (other than myself, my husband, and our parents) have been changed to "living" to protect their privacy.

I would love to hear from you if:
  • you and I share a common ancestor
  • you have any pictures you would like to contribute or ask about
  • you see any incorrect or misleading information (or even typos!)
  • you have any information that can or should be added
  • you would like to introduce yourself as a "new" cousin
  • you have questions about the data

Family is everything. It defines you--the heart of your spirit, the heritage of your smile, not only the color of your eyes but how they see the world. You are bound by kinship. You add your own link to the chain, and that is where you strengthen or weaken what you have been blessed--or burdened--with. That is where you use the indefinable quality that belongs to only you, the bit of uniqueness you pass on to your children for good or bad, the part of you that will always be separate from those who share your name, your blood, and your past.
