I have been involved with my family history since 1973. I have overcome many brick walls, as documents become available to the public. I also ask for help in various places from various people. I am married and have 8 grown children, 26 grandchildren and 6 great grand-children. Additionally, we adopted 3 grandchildren of which we are the Paternal Grandparents of.
My family tree currently contains over 15,000 names. And I am adding often.
