Genealogy Treasure Trove

Welcome to my family history and genealogy treasure trove.  This project is a labor of love which I dedicate to my parents and ancestors who sacrificed so much for their posterity. Let me quote Jordanes, who said,  “I have followed the writings of my ancestors, and have culled a few flowers from their broad meadows to weave a chaplet for him who cares to know these things.”

Sources and Assistance

I have tried to include sources wherever possible.  However, this is a work in progress, and any help is much appreciated.  If you see any information you question, examine the sources; not everything in genealogy is ever 100% accurate.  If you discover any errors, please inform me and kindly provide the source.  You can contact me by email at

Family Search

For individual and family information i.e. pedigree charts and family group sheets, I have moved everything to FamilySearch, which is owned and maintained by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

I had previously posted “Individual Stories and Biographies” of various individuals here on this website prior to 07/24/2017, but am in the process of moving them all to FamilySearch. Listed below, by latest date first, is a log of items I have uploaded to Family Search thus far with an accompanying link.
