Let's keep the candle burning bright

Listing - initiated on October 9, 2006

Where would we be, without those who contribute information? Everything is important - such as the smallest family tidbit, a family tree, a cemetery listing, obituary and/or a family bible record. Those donating, are the keepers of the flame and they prevent us from stumbling in the dark as we search for our ancestors.  We gratefully thank all that have taken the time and energy to contact us and share their information. My most humble apologies if I have omitted anyone that sent us information.
