Welcome to Our Leaves & Branches!

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.
