Have you ever wondered about history?  How about the history of your family?  How about a place - have you ever stood in any place at any time and wondered what the trees around you have been witness to?  I do it almost all the time. I don't see it as dwelling in the past but rather having the knowledge of what has gone before you helping to guide you into your future.  We've all heard the old adage - those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it.
Each generation takes action to try and improve the lives of their children and children's children and it is important for us to take stock in what has been accomplished and what failures were made, what bad decisions did to the communities and what good decisions did to the communities.
These pages will contain some of my families genealogical information but also the history that surrounds our families and our countries.  Anyone wishing to contribute, please contact me!  The more information there is to share, the better off we all are!  Take care and God bless!

Please remember - this is a work in progress, so please contact me if you have any contributions, questions or comments.

This is a compilation of photos I've obtained during my genealogy research.  The idea is moving from the past to the future in the order of the pictures.   I hope to improve my video edit skills and come up with a photo movie like this for each family in my research.  If you have some ideas or photos to have included in these movies, please let me know! Thanks!
Feel free to contact me!
