I wanted to come up with a way to share some of the family history information that has been gathered about our ancestors and extended family. Christopher set up this site to get me started. I’m not sure what is the best way to organize the information yet but we will learn as we go. If you have stories you would like to include we can add them too.
I think I will begin by posting stories I have gathered. Then I will add things about myself and go from there. I know it is a little self-centered but it is a place to start.
My goal is to use this site as a kick-off to interest my family and relatives in our shared Family History. Some people believe that Family History is just searching out your genealogy – find any individual that is related to you. I believe it includes any information about their lives. This would include not just the documents that provide the birth, marriage and death dates and places, but also any journal entries, biographies, stories or other documents that pertain to their lives. I would also include pictures and newspaper clippings that may pertain to them. Click on a family name above or a picture or recent post below to begin.
Check out the Family Tree page. It links to a new program that displays the family tree and related documents and pictures. It is a password protected site that includes information on not only relatives that have passed on, but also each of us that are related. I am using this program to link the documents I have gathered to the individuals they belong with. My goal with this program is to document each individual as fully as I can.
This blog will be more to share interesting family stories and related items which may or may not be tied directly to The Family History.
