This is a genealogy project
which has turned into a labour of love.
The purpose of the website
is to share my accumulated knowledge with my family and friends.
The project is also intended as a tool to help my family find each other
and to help me find them.
I wish to accumulate and
document more information so I will be able to add more branches to my
family tree and add to the story of my ancestors. In my quest I hope to
assist fellow genealogists in their own quest to find information and add
to their family trees...
Please come in and view
my web site and enjoy the stories I have written .
