There are many people out there doing “Genealogy Research”. But how many of them are truly researching “their” roots? has wonderful tools to aid you in your research and I use it almost daily. Yes, I pay for it. I also belong to another site, Genealogy Bank, which is newspaper articles and a few other things. I pay for access to that site as well. I have other sites (paid and free) that I use off and on. Sometimes these site will offer “free” access for a limited time. I take advantage of that quite frequently.

Back to doing the actual research, too many people just collect names. I see it all the time on They find a “potential” link or “hint” to someone in their tree. Instead of actually researching the source they just “add” these individuals to their own tree.

I have a second section to my site that is dedicated to my family tree. The individuals listed on this site are all linked together and I provide sources and documentation to prove that connection.

I created this portion of my site so that other (confirmed) family members could add to the research or simply benefit from my own. Please understand that this is a work in progress (and mostly likely always will be) so not all related individuals have entries.

I have two children that are my own. They have different fathers and I am researching that line. These lines are connected through my children. I have two step sons that I love dearly and think of them as my own. They both have the same mother and I am researching her line for them and my grandchildren. That being said, you may not understand how some people fit into the family tree. Any given person with an entry in this database is biologically related to someone else.

We encourage family members to join. It could end up being a way to stay connected. Yes, I know there’s Facebook, but it’s also nice to have a more private place to share photos about the living and a way to share your family heirlooms with the rest of us.
