I started doing family history research in Spring 2003. It's about time I shared some of this info! I am particularly trying to share info that maybe nobody else has.

I'm sorry I don't have time to add lots of complete details, but if you see a name on this list that you're interested in, email me (julii at swinny dot net) and I will endeavour to help. I just don't have time to get all the fine details down here, I have more on just about everyone on this list.
