I have been doing family tree research since the late 1970's.
I am most interested in the Southern Illinois area.
Surnames in my family include: WEINDEL, MCCRACKEN, ENLOE, JOHNSON, ESSENPREIS, SCHWENDEMANN, BECKERT, DUMBECK, BILYEU, WALTER, VEST AND GRUMMICH.
Evelyn McCracken of Bond County, Illinois was my second cousin, and mentor, who got me hooked.
I am always interested in sharing info.
ANY PHOTOS THAT I HAVE PERSONALLY TAKEN ARE OK TO COPY AND USE FOR FAMILY TREE OR PERSONAL FAMILY USE.
