Finding Your Roots

  I have been researching for over 35 years. My family lines are in West Virginia from the early 1800's.
Although there are many links to WV and neighboring states, links on this site
will take you to many other states and a variety of family lines.

Stories about My Ancestors

My Military Ancestors and their Service


Our families are the nucleus of the larger world and where we find the food, shelter, protection, provision and social interaction in our early years. Much later in life when we begin to yearn for the protection and comfort of family, many of the special people of our youth are gone. To have known those people is a blessing since we share their biological genes and often their dreams. They are a part of who we are today, how we live and how we believe.  Information about the ancestors who have created our very beings will hopefully make us more secure in the understanding of their humanity. They were not just names in old Bibles or on tombstones. These people lived in a changing country and faced ordeals we can only read about. At the same time, they faced the age-old decisions about love, marriage, caring for a family, religion, education, sickness and death, the same as we face.
