    There are the questions asked most, Genealogy can surprise you. Some are told one thing and with Genealogy and finding your roots, there comes another. You Might think you are From English Descent but if you trace your roots properly you will find out you are German. I have seen this repeatedly. 

 

    I have been doing Genealogy for over 20 years now; I started when Computers did not help at all. I have done over 100 Trees and have collected old Family Photos in my Search as Well as some of these documents below.
