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 mdcarlson144@outlook.com.

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.

Individual Stories and Biographies are listed below in alphabetical order by last name. Selected stories and biographies are linked to a post in my blog. Each story or biography also includes a PDF file to download for interested parties.

Following the Individual Stories and Biographies is a section listing copies of patriarchal blessings secured from the archives of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These are also listed in alphabetical order.
