This site contains a database of almost 26,000 persons. Every bit of information has a source. Although I am not a professional genealogist, I have been working on this genealogy of my family for more than 48 years and take pride in the information. So please feel free to double check any source or verify the data. I would appreciate any feedback, if you find additional information. Please provide me with your source.
My focus is on “Direct Ancestors." However, in order to further my research, I have included their siblings, their spouses, their parents, and their children. Some additional information from direct descendants of these siblings, has been included.
I appreciate my wonderful “Internet Cousins” whom have provided me with complimentary comments about my website. It makes me thankful for providing at least a little input to others’ research.

My Family History Data has been uploaded into a Pedigree Resource File on the "FamilySearch.org" website and is available for viewing including notes and sources.
After 45+ years, I thought it was time to make my many, many hours of
research available to be preserved forever. So in addition to this website, a static version as of 10 Sep 2011, is now available on FamilySearch.org under the Family Trees and Submission Number MM4N-4J9 (click here)
Thank you to the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for providing their website "FamilySearch.org" and the resources to do our research.
I hope some of this data can assist you in your family history. Happy Researching!
