Welcome to my Genealogy Site! Although I have lived in Michigan since I was four years old, all my roots 'n relatives are in the south. My heart belongs to western North Carolina, with the majestic mountains and beautiful waterfalls. One thing that I've discovered in my research is that almost everybody with roots in Jackson, Transylvania and surrounding counties are related, usually in several ways.
All information at my site may be freely shared for
private, non-commercial use. Please be aware
that I have over 75,000 names in my database at this
time and, except for my own direct lines, this
information has not been personally
verified. The information on this site
represents a compilation of material from many
written sources, internet databases and data
generously shared with me by other
researchers. The information found here is
meant to be a starting point for personal research
and should not be used as a source
for documentation purposes. If you find
any information that you believe is in error (and
I'm sure you will) please politely let me
know and I will be happy to correct it. So
pull up a rocker and sit a spell on the porch. We'll
look out at the beautiful Smoky Mountains, sip some
sweet tea and you can meet the family.
12-29-2008 I updated the GEDCOMS found here for the
first time in five years. All my previous data
was lost in a computer crash and it has taken me
this long to recover some of the information.
I still mourn the loss of all my sources and notes,
which could not be recovered or replaced.
Many people sent me their own GEDCOMS to get
me started again and I truely appreciate it.
A big "Thank You" and a hug go to Karen
Glazner, Linda Owen Anders, John Cook, Dan
Johnson, Paul Mears and all the other people
who so generously helped me. These are true
genealogists in every sense of the word, who
know that research and information mean nothing
unless it is shared with others.
