Welcome to Our Genealogy Site

Please note, we recently uploaded additional family records. We found a couple oddly matched individual with multiple parents. If you notice any of these please comment. Last update to our tree was June 30, 2022.

The intent of this site is to have a common, secure site to share family information, photos, and stories that many of us may not have heard. A Virtual Family History Book that is continually updated, from all branches of our family.

To protect the privacy of everyone using this site, we have restricted viewing this site to only registered users. Although data for genealogy purposes is public information, we have chosen to protect our information on this site. We have also blocked all internet robots as well to protect our privacy.

To gain access to this site, please register and once confirmed, you will have access to view our site. All new users are given submitter level access, which shows what we currently know about "Our Branches" of our family members.

As you'll notice our current generations are in need of an update. This is one of the main reason for this site. Our families are stretched over the miles and keeping in contact with everyone is not always easy. This is where we need your help! You can directly update your family information if you'd like. Please use the contact section and I will send you information on how to do that.

We do have a very nice photo section, which is easier viewed by Album. We have may wonderful photos but would very much appreciate sharing photos you may have.

The Chosen

We are the chosen. In each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us: Tell our story. So, we do. In finding them, we somehow find ourselves. How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors, "You have a wonderful family; you would be proud of us.". How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say. It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who I am, and why I do the things I do.

The Bones of My Bones

The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh. It goes to doing something about it. It goes to pride in what our ancestors were able to accomplish. How they contributed to what we are today. It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family. It goes to deep pride that the fathers fought and some died to make and keep us a nation. It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us. It is of equal pride and love that our mothers struggled to give us birth, without them we could not exist, and so we love each one, as far back as we can reach. That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them. So we do. With love and caring and scribing each fact of their existence, because we are they and they are the sum of who we are. So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family. It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take my place in the long line of family storytellers. That is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and restore the memory or greet those who we had never known before.
