I have been working with my Mother Blanche PULLIUM Johnson since 1974 as a young teen. It is a deep passion of mine. I am available as freelance researcher for hire. I have Genealogy Research experience [44+ years] and took over when Mom passed away in 1999 (15 Apr). My father Jay N. Johnson passed away 25 March 2006 - they both wanted me to share what I had and to find other family members to contribute to our genealogies. I hope this will do just that. I also have a Graphic Arts degree and photojournalism [32 + years experience]
My roots are mainly in the Southern and Eastern United States: North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia (and other states to a lesser extent.) The vast majority of my ancestors originated in England, Italy, Germany, France, Scotland, and Ireland.
Paternal Lines Searching: I am interested in all Jackson's in the United States prior to 1900, with a major emphasis on those in Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee [Henry County - western TN]. Husband's Paternal family

I am interested in all the Pullium's in the United States prior to 1900, with a major emphasis on those in England and state side in Virginia, North Carolina [Cherokee County and surrounding counties] and Tennessee. My Mom's Family - From Banister back to England our spelling is iAm only from Him backwards. If your name is spelled Pulli U m then you are kin from Cherokee County, NC.
I am also interested in researching my children's heritage.

NOTE: I love to get all information from anyone to make the memorial better so please feel free to contact me with any suggestions. Except if you do not have an E-mail, or do not let people comment on your profile or give any way for me to contact you back then please do not make suggestions. I say this because if I have a question about the information I need some way to contact you. I will not blindly put on something that I have concerns about.
******Please use Edit tab on upper right hand side of memorial for all transfer request and all corrections. This makes it so much easier for me. PLEASE DO NOT add the info in the "Leave Flowers & a Note" section, this looks tacky. This should be used for love & sympathy notes not bio. Use the "edit" tab and I will gladly add your information in the memorial. ******
I own the originals to most of the family photos. I do not need credit unless you want to pass along my information since I own the original. If one of my kin are in your family - do not think twice about downloading and using their picture - you definitely have my permission!!) If you would like an original photo sent to you, that I have taken please ask that's all there is to it. The original is 10 times better than a 72dpi copy off this site, I promise. I love to share with family. Thanks.
