I began my research in August 2000, all due to a class project one of my childen had, at that time. Since then, it has become a lifetime hobby, passion and obsession. Many, many, many hours of work have been put into the research and documentation of my ancestry. My hope is that you will benefit from the research I am sharing here, with you.
My Mom's side of the family comes from the North East and Mid West (NJ, NY, VT, PA, OH, IN, WI, NE, KS then on out to CA) as well as some folks from England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Holland and Germany.

Please Note: It is advised that you verify any and all information obtained from this site. I strive to make all information as accurate as possible, and, I do my best to show proof. Uunfortunately, that is sometimes impossible to do. Sometimes, it plain ole comes down to the "perponderance of the evidence"! Also, I may have recieved information from others who are researching these same ancestors, who's sources may not be accurate, and I have not been able to verify for my own self, yet.
If you have any corrections or additional information, PLEASE contact me, and share them!
