My mother left me a treasure before she died - her hand scribbled notes about her family lineage. It was just a few generations back - names, marriages, locales and some dates. She had talked about our ancestry many times before but I was too busy working a full time job and raising children to really be interested until now. It has been a journey of discovery which continues as a passion today. I hope to connect with unknown relatives through this site or to provide connections for others who aren't related to me. Roots are important as they are footprints of history and of our ancestors contribution to it. Enjoy the ride and may God bless you and yours.
