Dee was always interested in the family and got hooked on genealogy when she took a class at BYU. She still gets excited when she visits a library, courthouse, cemetery or has a chance to chat with a relative online or on the phone. We have traveled to Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma, England, and Switzerland in search of more information about the family and to get in touch with our roots.
Now Dee is still researching but does much of it on the internet. People are still helping us by sending us information via this website we hope you will share some of your information and photos.
Visit often; 2012 should be a banner year for this site with the addition of Civil War Records, additional photos, and histories, and also information on Glennís Swedish lines.
Happy Ancestor Hunting,
