Just as our Genealogy research is a 'work in progress', the same holds true for this new home of our Family Roots. This new site was an opportunity to take the sharing of our information to a new level.

Searching for new family members is an important part of any genealogy research. The more members we can bring together, the larger our tree will grow. In order to reach out to researchers, this new site will allow new individuals to review our research and discover if they are part of our tree.

As always, the most delicate information is restricted to family members who have been recognized and given 'log in' information.

If you are new to this site and believe that you are part of this growing family tree, please contact us.


The information on this website is only possible by the hard work of many family member historians. This is not a single persons research, but a collective exchange. Individuals who contribute to this website are recognized here - Acknowledgements
