Hi all. My cousin Gerelyn has been the family genealogist for many years and I picked up the interest from her. I've been doing genealogy for about four years and enjoy it very much. I am working on the paternal surnames ATWOOD primarily in England, VA, OH, IL, and LA; and SMITH in MD; Shelby County, KY; IN; and Crawford County, IL. On the maternal side HAHN/HAWN in Germany, NC, OH, and MO having many ancestors in Southeast MO; and JOELL from Ireland, Canada, and the Northeastern US. My Joell line is my brickwall. I was born and raised in MO. When I moved to OH, Gerelyn informed me that we had ATWOOD ancestors here. I have found several great-grandparents and so on in cemeteries in my local community! Life is full of surprises. Finally, I am happy to receive transfer of any family members' memorials. Regards, Alan
