Genealogy research is a never ending project; each discovery leads to another and then to another. It’s like putting together a never ending jigsaw, but the rewards are many.
I’ve updated the genealogy database with more persons, information and needed corrections. Although I have endeavored to ensure the accuracy of the genealogical data contained herein, there will be some mistakes. If you find any needed corrections or want to share genealogy information, please let me know.

Hope to see y’all there!
