Born and raised in Darlington Wisconsin. My fathers family has resided in Lafayette County since the 1850's. My mothers side of the family immigrated from Switzerland in the 1920's. My dad's family is Irish, Scottish and English. My revolutionary ggggrandfathers who immigrated from Wales and England ended up in Clearfield & Centre county Pennsylvania. Their descendants moved to Iowa and Wisconsin. I love the mystery of searching for my ancestors. Feel free to copy any of the pictures I take. I take them to help others who are researching their ancestry. If I have added someone that is not my direct ancestor I am always willing to transfer. Thank you!
