Family Tree




  I've been searching for my family's roots for a while now (see surnames below). I started on a whim, but not very seriously, until recently. Genealogy is so intriguing, not just the individual members of a family but how that family has evolved, changed, and stayed the same through the decades. It's a long and difficult process, often with missing pieces.

I started out with my own surname but quickly came to find that getting much information would be like pulling teeth. My father died when I was 6 years-old, so my knowledge of his side of the family is almost nil. Even though I'll never get my father back, I can recover his family history and get to know him this way.

My surname search has begun in Wisconsin, at least so far. Here is a list of the names I am or will be researching. Please email me if you might have a family link!
