I retired from manufacturing in 2015 and that allows me lots of time to do genealogy research. I have been searching my family's lineage for twenty years now. Research has connected me with many who are related and the stories that come with the connections. I find it very rewarding.
Some of the surnames I'm researching from N.Georgia, Southeast Tennessee, and Southwestern N. Carolina are: ADAMS, STYLES (STILES), SORRELS, WITT, WATERS, ELLIS, HOLDEN, and CHANDLER.
Some of the surnames from Pennsylvania, Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas are: MUNDELL, GARRET, KASTNER, PERNER, SHINN, and WILEY.
