Now a little reason why we do this. After going through many trials and tribulations I decided to start a hobby. In 1983 I began this project which has lasted over 30 years. This is a portion of our effort to preserve for future generations, family information, as accurately as possible. We have taken as much care as possible to ensure that all the family information provided here is correct, however, we can'tguarantee 100% accuracy. This is why we ask for any input from family members/non-family members.

We are not professional genealogist, we're just people with a strong belief in family. Of course, we have not done this alone. The number of people who have helped us along the way have been numerous. This site is the natural outgrowth of a hobby...a love of, and some might even say an obsession with...Genealogy. We are building a dynamic, ever-growing site.
