My Grandmother told me stories about our ancestors on both sides of the family. I am into genealogy because she knew all of that info and passed it on. I learned about Find A Grave though a very distant "cousin" in Hawaii and it has added so much detail to those stories.
major names researching:
Kuebler, Herzog, Long/Lang, Geeting/Keedy, Middlekauff/Middlecoff, Snyder, Hutzel/Hutsel/Hutsell/Hutzell, Wolf, Flook, Wilson, Fuhrer, Mills, Thatcher, D'Ulshoefer, Beasley, Stauss, Grieson/Greeson, Sievert, Steel, Suggs, Franks, Roff, Thomas, McKnight
