I've always had an identity crisis as i did not know my biological father or his side of the family, nor did i know much about my mother's side of the family either. Off and on for the past 28 years, i have tried researching for information pertaining to my family and with the internet being so advanced these days, i'm able to find loads of information and have been piecing together my family tree. What an amazing journey it has been and i'm not even close to being done.
I am touched by the stories and photos. The way of life my ancestor's led. Just amazing. I want to keep their mark on this world, in my own way. Family is family and without them, we wouldn't continue to exist.
I come from: maternal side Baker/Talkingington/Broady/Fuller/White/Wilson/Booth/McDonald/Ice/Edgell/Starkey and my paternal side Hughes/Kuhn-Coon/Turner/Evans/Grogan/Fisher/Whiteman/Lyle.
Although i have grown up in the Pacific NW, my ancestors are from W.Virginia,Pennsylvania, NC, Ohio, Indiana & New York areas.
Not sure who to give credit for this but i love it "I AM BOUND TO THEM,THOUGH I CANNOT LOOK INTO THEIR EYES OR HEAR THEIR VOICES. I HONOR THEIR HISTORY,I CHERISH THEIR LIVES,I WILL TELL THEIR STORIES,I WILL REMEMBER THEM.." author unknown.
I'd love to help others by locating and photographing memorial markers so please just ask and i would be happy to help!
