I am the oldest son of Wilbur James Priest and Rose Louise Cupps. I was born and raised in the Toledo, Ohio area. I have been doing genealogy research since I was about 9 years old.
I am a member of:
GCS - Genealogy by Computer Society of Toledo
LCCOGS - Lucas County Chapter OGS
NGS - National Genealogy Society
OGS - Ohio Genealogical Society, serving as a Trustee
APG - Association of Professional Genealogists
I am a frequent speaker at local, regional, and national society meetings and seminars.
I am doing a one name study and have done extensive research on the surname Priest. I am currently preparing an interactive CD and a multi-volume book which will exceed 4,800 pages on the Priest family when it is released. My direct line ancestors came from Wales and settled in Virginia, then later moving to Licking County, Ohio.
I am also researching my other paternal line - Ankney/Ankeny and my maternal lines - Cupps and Schumacher.
Please feel free to contact me with additional information or corrections.
