I was first bitten by the genealogy bug back in junior high school when we were given a family tree assignment and my dad and I started to research our family tree. It has just been over the past five years that I have really taken that interest to a new level and have really begun to explore our family history with the intentions of both preserving the memory of our loved ones for my sons who never had the blessing of knowing them and to also provide them with a different perspective of our world history through the eyes of family who lived during that time period.**My work here is exclusive to the direct line of our family (including that of my husband). I love to meet new cousins in the hopes that we might share information that only our individual families would have had, including photos, records, and written histories. I don't mind the copying of my photos (they are here to share as family); however, please do be respectful in noting the source of them when you reshare them on other sites.The surnames of my family on my mom's side include: ANDERSDOTTER ANDERSSON BRIGGS BROOKS BURCH CHASE COWLES FLOWERS HANDCOCK HORREL JONSDOTTER JONSSON MCMULLIN PIPER ROSE SANDAHL SHORT SMALE SMITH STANBURY STANDING STRICKLAND TALLMAN TANNER WERRINGThe surnames of my family on my father's side include: ADAMS BUITER BARKER BROWN COOLEY COOMBER FINNEY FOSTER HARRIS HOLLAND KING LUCHTMEYER PINNEY ROOT SOPER SPRAGUE TAINTER THAYER THOMAS TIBBET WALKER WARREN WELLS WILLIAMS WOOD The surnames on my husband's mother's side include: CREMER DEGEEST MOS OLTHOUSE STUURWOLD VANDENOEVER The surnames on my husband's father's side include: BOSKER BROM BROWN BURTON CRAMER FLETCHER HAGLE MAHONEY SMITH SWEAZEY THOMSON WHALEY WHEELER
