We live in Eastern North Carolina but spend time in Cincinnati, OH where our kids and their families call home.
When I was young, my Aunt Marie R GAGEN, planted a seed. She was the one who kept the family tree. Every time we visited the tree was discussed. As I got older, I continued the tree and the research. It was the main reason for my 1st NEC computer and genealogy program, ROOTS.
My primary family names are: LEINDECKER/LEYENDECKER, GAGEN, KARL, ANSBERRY, BROGAN, PODANY and HOOVER. Pittsburgh, PA and Defiance, OH.
My wife's primary names are: PAUL, POTTER, PATE, BURKE and VOLIVA. Bonifay, Holmes County, FL.
