Here you will find additional information and links. I began my own family research almost 10 years ago but only got serious about it in the last few years. I have now compiled a substantial data base of information on many of the lines of my family. I will just be displaying a sampling of that information. If you want more, I am happy to share, just leave me a comment on one of my posts or click on the contact button below.
