Welcome to my blog, featuring ancestors I am researching.  Some of these individuals are my ancestors, some are not.  I believe all ancestors are worthy of being featured.  Alas, a researcher’s life is not long enough to accomplish that feat!  These ancestors are lucky enough that they were either easier to research; pivotal in our understanding of their family’s history; or spoke to me in such a way that they have delighted and inspired me.  Please read this with an affectionately critical eye, realizing that genealogy research is always a work in progress, especially with new records and DNA research being made available.  Your friendly input and discussion are welcome!
