Please do not copy or otherwise use my photos with out my expressed permission. While I am open to personal use with my permission, knowledge & Credit I will not allow use on subscription sites and public websites. I have been researching my family for over 20 years now. It has been and continues to be a fulfilling endeavor. I have traveled to most locations my Ancestors have lived in and dug though the archives, courthouses and libraries of towns they have resided in to learn more about them. Our Ancestors are more then just a birth and death date. Those dates are important but they don't speak to the life they lead between their birth and death date. I have tried to lay flowers at every ancestors stone or burial place I have ever visited. Most records I have obtained were not obtained electronically, Ancestry was in its infancy and societies and libraries didn't even have computers let alone email many of the popular sites simply did not exist. Researching was labor intensive and expensive. You had to communicate with societies by writing in-depth letters and they were sent via US Mail, or you called or visited places in person. I would not trade that journey for anything. There is no greater thrill than making your own discoveries.Happy Hunting and I do hope you do some digging and not just downloading and copying or you will miss an amazing journey. Wishing You Many AHA MOMENTSL...........
