Welcome to our Web Site!

We're glad you’ve come to visit to see what we’re all about.

We’re an organization of people:
  • who are enthusiastic about getting to know where we came from, who our ancestors were, and what their world was like;
  • who are anxious to see that records are available to any genealogist - enough to spend time copying, indexing, and either posting on-line or publishing them for others’ use;
  • who enjoy the company of people who share the same interest; and
  • who generally just love the search.

Along the way we’ve developed some parallel skills:
  • we can decipher old-fashioned handwriting-- complete with misspellings, and sometimes in foreign languages;
  • we can climb ‘brick walls’;
  • we’ve developed a whole new language that consists mostly of acronyms;
  • we’ve learned to use the computer well enough to have a love/hate relationship with it;
  • we spend a lot of time wandering around cemeteries, reading weather-worn headstones;
  • we’re great at problem-solving and question-asking; AND,
  • we can drink coffee, eat cookies and have animated conversations all at the same time, usually while standing up!

Come and visit one of our meetings - we’d love to meet you.

Even more, we’d love to have you join us!

A big thank you to all who helped make this data available to all.
