About This Site
The site is dedicated to all our families, all of the ancestors who came before us and all those who will come after us. We'll share their courage, their strength, their gifts of life and most of all their stories. In order for us to understand our ancestors, we must understand the world they lived in. Their laws were different, their social and moral attitudes were different. We must understand and realize that the times they were living in is quite different then the times we are living in. And just as we do today, they lived through love and joy, pain and heartache. Through this site their stories and memories will live on!!
Our family history is dedicated to the truth and nothing but the truth. Looking within our own families, we can find out some amazing information and maybe a couple of surprises. We've discovered plenty of arranged marriages as well as marriages of passion. There were many divorces and messy breakups. We've even got children who were born illegitimately and out-of-wedlock and children who were born "early" after shotgun weddings. We've traced our family migrations, moving from one place to another, looking for work, food, education, religion and freedom. And of course there has been deaths and murders, destruction, natural disasters and man-made disasters.
These are the stories of our ancestors and will be the stories of our descendants. We dig into our past to be entertained but most of all we dig in our past to be educated. The saying goes "if we don't learn from the past, we will repeat ourselves." So dig, learn and try not to repeat!!
Remember Genealogical facts are just names, dates and places. they become a life story when they are assembled with historical data and events.
