I started researching my family in 2007 after the birth of my son and the death of my grandmother. My grandmother had spent many hours telling me our family stories, and I wish that I had done this research while she was still alive! This web site represents the bulk of my research since that time.
My inclination to take on too much means that sometimes I don’t get back to people as quickly as I ought to. Be patient with me.
Information on Copyright
Genealogy is about collaboration and sharing, in my opinion. I encourage you to borrow recklessly from my research. Notice, however, that I have licensed my research under a Creative Commons non-commercial license. This means that I would prefer that you didn’t make millions off of my research. OK, I know I’m dreaming. You won’t make millions, but I would prefer it if you shared whatever you learn here for free with others.
Information on Privacy
To protect the innocent and not-so-innocent, I have added only minimal information about living people to this web site.
Collaborating with other researchers is one of the big thrills of internet genealogy for me. I want to thank all of you who have helped me with this research (you know who you are!). I look forward to meeting those of you who will help me in the future.
