Social researcher and nonprofit executive by trade. Amateur family genealogist. Learning about my past to better understand the present and prepare for our family's future. Familial lines are: McDougall/Johnson/Annadell. Heckman (of Dixon, IL)/Montgomery/Lawson. Witmer (of Venango Co., PA)/Durner/Monks. Lewis/Thompson/Boyer of Vincennes, IN. Much of my family has been in the United States and Canada since the early 1500s. I enjoy learning their stories and their impact on history, politics and agriculture mostly within the Northwest Territory (New France) and Pennsylvania.I request transfers for direct ancestors and indirect ancestors whose nuclear families have granted me permission to manage their sites.
