About this site?

 

When you find ancestors, are you interested in learning more about the history they lived? Do you want to explore new directions to solve the unsolved mystery? What was home and family life like? What did they eat? wear? read? What were the important happenings? Why were the wars fought and who fought them? How in the world did they move about? Did the Revolutionary war veterans who settled in Vermont continue to side with America during the War of 1812 or were there some who changed sides?

This page is being created, on a volunteer basis, to explore the world of our ancestors who resided in Vermont. Through your genealogical research, you have learned something about your ancestors. How do you learn more? How do you solve the unsolved mystery? My answer to both is to learn more about genealogical research by learning more about the history your ancestors lived. After all, isn't genealogy the history of individuals and families?

I believe our ancestors would want us to know more about them than just their names and dates of birth and death. Don't you?
