Back in the 1960's tracing your Family Tree was just becoming an interesting hobby. Now, like a lazy little babbling stream merrily following the course of time, that stream has metamorphosed into a huge, directed waterfall and on to an almost out of control flood of family information. Between tracing records, having DNA tested, and the ever-increasing boundaries the Internet is providing, connecting with family one never even realized existed forty years ago, has become an absorbing, interesting avocation for everybody from school children to Seniors. Our family alone has over 14,000 leaves growing on one tree or another in such diverse places as England, Wales, Scandinavian Countries, Finland, USA and Canada. All of us looking to be connected to one another. One never knows where or when that connection may happen. It's just not the data that's important. Was that first traveller a thoughtful, directed man who only wanted a better life for himself and his family? Was he a rogue looking for a fast way out of town to places he would never be found? Did he leave because he was in trouble with the local constabulary, or was he looking for religious freedom? What about the women? Why did they come? What were their thoughts? What was in it for them? When you find the stories, they are fascinating! Our thirst for knowledge of these people is insatiable! Whether or not you are a leaf on one of our orchard of trees you may find a graft that will lead you to another branch where another leaf has been joined to one of our own. Come. Learn about us. Learn about yourself.
