I started doing family research in the Fall of 2012. A friend told me about Find A Grave web site. I have been hook ever since. Through this wonderful tool, I have been able to locate several of my relatives. The family names that I am researching are: Rakestraw, Cox, Baldwin, Palm, Elkins, Ringles, Bacon, Ridge, Loving and Fox. Several of these family names, I am just now learning about. I love being able to add personal facts on my families Memorials. This adds the personal touch and I hope it will be useful if others are trying to locate and tie families together.
