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!!

Thank You

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!!
