The family history found in these pages is the result of many years of “looking back”. Beginning in my teen years, with perhaps some foresight of where my curiosity might lead me in the future, I began asking questions of my mother, my brothers, and my aunts and uncles, jotting down dates and people and places as they told the stories of their younger years.
The many notes I took became the springboard for the journey I would later embark on to discover what I could about our ancestors, and it’s a certainty that much of what I have found in the course of my research would not have been possible without their immeasurable help.
My heartfelt thanks to all of my family for their love and encouragement!
The genealogy program used for genealogical data is the ingenious work of Darrin Lythgoe at The Next Generation. If you’re looking for a program with every possible feature you could ask for I highly recommend this one.
Although another pastime of mine is designing websites, I came across this template and just fell in love! Clean, uncluttered and simple, exactly what I felt was needed for a website filled with a lot of data. You can find this and other fab templates, along with a treasure trove of amazing webdesign graphics at WebTreats
