Visiting?? How to get here & "Where to stay" April 2008

I am reducing my time on the computer and "reprioritizing" my life and putting my FAMILY first for the first time in a very long time. If you have something to contribute to the site to help in a "quicker update" please feel free to contact me.

~~ Search Engine ~~

Please note this search engine does not pick up names on scanned images. Therefore you may want to check some indivdual pages as well if looking for certain names. You may also just want to seach for the surname of a person and not the complete name, you may receive more hits. Scanned images are located on the Cemeteries & Churches Page, Historical Notes Page, Miscellaneous Page, and the Obituaries Page. When transcribing census records I used a "ditto" to save typing the surname on each line. As a result, every line that has a "ditto" is not recognized. (I used a ditto for ALL census records.) So if you are looking for a particular child/person, you may want to search for just the SURNAME and then you will be able to locate the family of this person, and hopefully the person you are looking for.

Search Hints Try using 1st 3 letters of surname with an asterisk ie. for Smith, Smi* REMEMBER:Census Enumerators were not the best spellers
