To everyone who visited this site, thank you!
Much gratitude is due to my husband, Kevin and my sons, Simeon and Conrad, for their enduring patience. Many times they went unclothed, unfed and unattended to while I went hunting for breadcrumb-clues or was cemented to my desk while typing away on the computer.
Special thanks to Kevin for his initial technical assistance to get this website up and running. It spared me many tears of frustration.
Thank you to family members, friends, acquaintances and even strangers, both locally and abroad, who enthusiastically share information, documents, photos, and anecdotes. Also, the assistance at national archives, local libraries and various museums has been superb! And, to everyone who freely shares their genealogical information on the web, it is much appreciated. It creates a goldmine of data and clues!
Above all … thanks be to God! Discovering my family roots, convinced me that “the lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.” Psalm 16:6, New American Standard Bible.
