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.

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.
