This website represents 15 years and more of research by me. I would appreciate that if you use the information I have provided here that you at least recognize my efforts by stating where it came from 
Thank You

This website is loaded with tons of information and I strongly suggest that you use the "Search this site" function at the top right corner if you are searching for info on someone in particular by putting the -SURNAME ONLY- in that box . Otherwise you will get too many unrelated results. There are over 250 pages on this site, not counting the photo albums. The search function will not find pictures that are in the photo albums, so be sure to check out the "Photos " page.  Otherwise, just browse the many pages and enjoy!!

Check out this new website "Patriot Guard Riders"

The Patriot Guard Riders (PGR) is an organization whose members attend the funerals of members of the U.S. military, firefighters, and police at the invitation of a decedent’s family. The group forms an honor guard at military burials, helps protect mourners from harassment and fills out the ranks at burials of indigent and homeless veterans. In addition to attending funerals, the group also greets troops returning from overseas at homecoming celebrations and performs volunteer work for veteran’s organizations such as Veterans Homes.

As of 2015 I was diagnosed with terminal cancer, so once the copyright ceases to change, you will know that I have left this world to be with all those who have gone before me. In the meantime, I will continue to add new information each month, as I have in the past, with hopes that you may find your ancestor here and learn a little more about them.
Everyday is a new beginning!!
