Hi, I am Cindy Pearsall. I began doing genealogy in 2000. Since then I have expanded my family tree in one place back to 1080 and in others several generations also. I started out with just a few names and now my house is over run with (about 30) 3 inch binders and tubs of papers, folders and pictures etc. I always say I get more fun going to a cemetery and finding an ancestor's grave than most people do going to an amusement park and riding the roller coaster.
My father's line includes Brooks, Haybron (southern Ohio); Gandee, Harper, Shafer or Shaver, Tanner, Hinzman, Raines and more (West Virginia); the famous Indian Scout Jesse Hughes who has many things written about his life; and I am cousins with Presidents Washington and Herbert Hoover.
My Mother's line includes Collard (originally from Belgium), Curwick, Kerouac (Jack Kerouac, the author and including being related to Madonna and Celine Dion); Newells' from Cambridgeshire, England and Snows from East Riding, Yorkshire, England; Brownfields, Sallee's & Cox from Ohio, and other places of ancestors are Netherlands, France, Italy and more.
