Website Terms and Conditions of Use
I created this family history website as a means of sharing my genealogical research with others who may have ancestors in common and want to know more about their own heritage. It is the work of thirty-plus years. I have loved delving into the past and exploring my husband's ancestry, as well as my own.
In addition to information about our family's ancestry, I have also included general information on the pursuit of genealogy.
