I am originally from Metcalfe County Kentucky and have been doing genealogical research for about 35 years. The families that I am primarily interested in are: England, Fields, Quinn, Mercer, Jessie, Bottoms, Hardwick and Rayburn. Most of them lived in south central Kentucky. My database on ancestry.com is titled ENG.
I live now in central Texas -- near Austin. After a long career in broadcasting, I teach electronic media at Texas State University in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
