Welcome...

     Originally, this project of a family tree began upon my return to my hometown of Muncie, Indiana in 2008.   With the help of my brother Chris, we began a journey of discovery.  We had the idea of publishing a family tree, but unknowingly, as time progressed the size of our tree would make it impossible to present or print.  Our original idea was to show family members, including our parents, a tree that showed where we had came from.  As the time passed it become an entire website, not only did it encompasses our family tree, but became an entire set of genealogical informational sites -- about our family, our DNA, and our family surnames.  It is a work in progress -- and now all contained in a database.

 

Accumulation of Ten Years...

     My website is a combination of all my past sites, over the past 10 years, to include all the research, that I have aquired and accumulated.  All the research has been obtained from numerous internet sources, been verified, where possible -- with a source, to maintain the sites integrity.  I do acknowledge that nothing is 100% free from flaws, and appreciates that as one researches backwards into time, facts gets harder to substantiate on family members, dates are difficult to identify or estimate, and other information can become skewed.   To the best of my research competence, this is the best information and facts that I have found, and this is how it is being presented.  If you believe any of my research is in error, please send me information/corrections via email at my contact information on the bottom of this page.

 

For Future Generations...

     This site was created to share with my family, memorabilia, photos, and stories, in a digital format, to preserve that knowledge for future generations.  All of these people in our tree have contributed to my family's genetic makeup and personalities.  I also have the start of a genetic map from DNA testing provided by my brother Chris and myself.  There are thousands of names, all of them our people in our tree all our related to my family.  All these relatives lived, survived, died and have a place in our history.  Some of them have fought in wars, some in revolutions, and some in conflicts; there are immigrants, settlers, and expatriates from all over the world.  All of these people make up a part of me, a part of my family, and each has a story of their own, but for now, in this time and place, 

 

     this is my family's story........
