Genealogy

Why did it take me so long to discover how fascinating genealogical research is? It's a glorious combination of jigsaw puzzle and detective work.

Some of the surnames I'm working on: ALSTON, BERRY, CHURCH, COUNTS, COX, DANCY, DAY, DUDLEY, EICHELBERGER, HEMPHILL, HORNE, KINARD, MANNING, MASON, MAYNOR, MILLIGAN, OWEN(S), QUINTON, ROUNTREE, SETZLER, STANLEY (brick wall -- need help!), STONER, STUART (brick wall -- need help!), SUMMER, SWITTENBERG, WASHINGTON, WHEELER.

For the information in gedcom form, see The Rootsweb World Connect pages or Gencircles. (Each of the surname pages listed above also includes a gedcom link.) The gedcoms include information on sources as well as some of the lateral branches that aren't included on the basic surname pages.

A note about sources: My sources vary in reliability. Some are primary sources (e.g., family bible, letters, wills); some are close to primary, although known to contain errors (e.g., census records); a few are unchecked information from other researchers. Although I do not include information that I've found in places like other people's web pages or collections of family trees, I do sometimes include information given to me by other researchers whose work I trust and information I have found in books even when I know that these books contain certain errors.

Please send any additions, corrections, or suggestions to me (natalie@maynor.net). Thanks!
