Welcome to Our Family Tree Web. I have always been interested in my ancestors. Several years ago, I began a more in-depth research of our ancestors. My journey was a slow one because many of my living relatives did not wish to reveal such information that they consider private or that of those ancestors they may wish to forget. If your family is like mine, you will have written letters with no success of a reply. I appreciate the reply from those that have taken the time to share with me and others everywhere.

Since being online, I have found the internet a very helpful resource. You can search for other surnames, compilations, find family tree homepages, and participate in the message boards. I have been busy browsing the census records. There are many wonderful resources online. I have a short list of resources on this site.

Many distant relations have been gracious in sharing genealogical information. I am overjoyed with their participation. We all share with each other and this is wonderful. I enjoy meeting new people online that have contacted me by e-mail. It has been exciting discovering that many of us are actually from the same families.

I hope this site will help encourage you to take part in researching your own family tree. I hope the resources are helpful as well.

Thank you all for sharing. God bless you and keep you well.

Love in Christ,
Janet & Family
