I began my family research project with my father 10 years ago. He was a marvelous oral historian. Yet, we recognized the two fires that destroyed his parents' homes had also taken the pictures and records. I began contacting extended families trying to collect photographs that were lost to us. I have met some marvelous individuals over time that have shared pictures and memories, and I am grateful. After the death of my dad, I decided to continue the project and to that end, I now work primarily on my family surname. But with the wealth of information I have amassed, I am contributing to this website so that others, just like us, will have a tangible piece of family history.
If you find a memorial I have created for a member of your family, please request a transfer of management, I will be glad to do so. Should you see an error, need to link a family member, send me an edit request.
My purpose is to link the generations, not to create quantity, rather quality. My goal is to provide family history footprints......
With help from Find A Grave members & their contacts, I am now a member of the Daughter's of the American Revolution through my maternal grandmother, Leno Kathryn Williams Poland. Thank you all so very much, it is an honor working with so many dedicated individuals who volunteer their time and effort to those of us so far away.
