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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
