Just some info:

Please keep in mind that I have lots of time and money invested in this project. Many of the names are family members... some a few (not usually very far) generations down the line. Others are names in my husband's family, brothers-in-laws families and my sons-in-laws families and daughter-in-laws families. Some are related to others in my family tree but not directly to me. All information I have personally gathered. I did not use any information from the Mormon Church's many sites. I have researched everything. Most photos belong to me directly, except the ones that I have given credit too.

My family lines are (note: the * are in my family tree {I still have many to mark.}) Jones, Pugh, Knowles, Prothero, Painter, Owens, Nash, Albright, Watkins, Hall, Edgerton, Willoughby, Draper, Charinsky, Aikin, Moore, Meers, Morgan, DalValley (DalVallee), Monson, Klaman, Breeden, Dora, Russell, Williamson, Arnold, Chism, Siddell, Weindenburner, Gill, Ames, Wallis, Chantos, Keller, Davis, Wilcox, Cox, Pate, Gruber, Palmer, Sullivan, Douthit, West, Butler, Reese, Balsley, Smallcomb and the list goes on.

Some folks, on this blog, are friends or friends' parents. Others are individuals that are on the same page as one of my family.

I am willing to do research for others, however I do charge for extensive research and for the cost of research items. To check in some of our local cemetery records they do charge. Birth and Death records also cost. Before I do that search I will require a deposit in my paypal account. Please ask ahead if I will be charged to help you. Also all of the articles I have, I have paid to make copies of .

Give me a Shout-out About Family History

I am not only looking for and posting my own family history, but others that I have found.

Blank lines means the individual is still living at the time that I post the article. I try not to publish any names of living individuals. This is not always possible, as some folks may still be alive and I don't know them. Sorry if I have posted a name of someone you know for sure is still living. Contact me and I will make their name a blank line.
I have the complete obit if you are related and need more information. Please state how you are related in your email.

How important....

How important is it to not loose touch with your family?
In my husband's case, very. We have not seen his one aunt and cousins in over thirty years. I found out where they were and we went to visit. It turns out that one of his cousins has had a stroke, the other is in stage 4 cancer of the lungs and liver.
We did not get to see her as she was sleeping while we were there. We hope to get back to visit her before she passes; however this is an eight hour drive. If we can work it out we most definitely will be going.
His other aunt that we visited I have never met. When I figured out that she was still living, I went on a hunt to find out where. My husband was like let's just drive by her house. Next thing I know he is parking the car, jumping out of the car and off to the front door. She was so shocked to see him. She kept saying how lonely she was and she has lots of stories to tell.
We can't wait to go back and visit her.
So keeping in touch is so important. Please put down any anger you have and get back in touch with family. It maybe hard to forgive, but it is too late once they are gone.
