My family history begins . . .
The anticipated release of the 1930 U.S. census records in April 2002 spurred my interest in family history. I began to scour the internet for any information regarding my ancestors. I found my first clue on FamilySearch, the genealogical website developed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). A quick search for my grandparents resulted in the discovery of a Pedigree Resource File (PRF) submitted in 1999. The file contained a collection of family groups and lineages which appeared to include my maternal grandfather. Thus began a new hobby, which has captivated me for over two decades.

Click on an image to see see an enlarged version. Double click on the enlarged picture to see it supersized. Left click your mouse and hold the button down to pan to a specific area.
