Do you sometimes wonder who your ancestors really were? Sure, we know their names, dates of birth, dates of death and many times where they are buried. We know who their mothers and fathers were and can even trace the names/dates back several hundred years. But, really, who were they?
The purpose of this blog is to share with each of you what I have found about who our people are. To do that, I'll need to spend a lot of time researching historical data and try to place our people in that scenario. Actually, this is extremely hard for me as I am NOT a historian. I was not a great student of history and I still can't always keep my eyes open when I read historical books. But, I'm curious and want to know this, so I will persevere.
I won't guarantee the facts in this blog but I'll do my best to make sure they are true and correct. I can only rely on the information that I find to be correct. That is my disclaimer. In other words -- don't hold me to the facts!!
Please, if you read something here and know it not to be true or you heard it a different way, let me know. Also, if you can add to what's here, we would all like to know. I really want to interact with each of you and learn everything you know so we can get as complete a history as possible.
I've listed the family names that I'm researching above. I'll try to stay on course as to direct ancestors, but sometimes distant relatives are way more colorful!
