Welcome to all of you family members, genealogists and internet wanderers. My family tree is actually a forest of assorted names and locations. Check out the branches to discover if you share a leaf or two.
Surnames (above and to the right). Here are the main family trees. My goal is to include names, dates, descendants, photographs, documents & sources for my information. These names link to locations & cemeteries. Related? Contact me to share & compare.
Locations (above and to the right). Here you can find my family names associated with each location, useful websites and blogs, books, maps and other resources that are helpful for research there. Do you have a favorite resource: archive, book, website to share? Let me know.
Cemeteries (above). The final resting places of my ancestors. Names, dates, maps & photographs are here.
Also visit my blog, Leaves & Branches for information on my current research, new discoveries, missing ancestors, memories and other miscellaneous posts. See the latest post below.

20 May 1833 MS – 23 Nov 1920 MS Son of Calvin Kennington Fortenberry My 1stcousin, 4x removed
It is very helpful to find someone in several consecutive census reports. The decades roll by. Children can be identified. We see those children increase in number and then decrease as they move out on their own. In 1920 William, age 86, has moved in with his son.
