More family tree info

I imported my complete family tree file yesterday. Be aware that I probably don’t have information on anyone in the tree that is not a direct ancestor. Everything I have is on the site, so if you email me about them, don’t expect much more information. Thanks.

The French Connection

I broke through another brick wall last night with some research. This one is probably more sure than the last one, I give this one an high 80%-90% chance of being correct. I decided to do some more research on a line that I had inserted into my tree in the beginning of my family […]

Tidbits, letters, information, etc. The first thing I posted is a letter that my great-great uncle, Edwin Corrigan, had wrote to some other family members. Sadly, Edwin died just last June at […]

It bites back..

It’s about time something like this happened. The world needs less of these jerks. I remember when I was a kid, we used to sled down a hill in our local cemetery. It had no headstones on it, it was an empty hill. But, there were always knocked down headstones and stories about kids who […]
