Welcome to the genealogy segment of my
web domain. I have information on families scattered about far and
therefore, figuring out the best way to layout this section becomes quite a
dubious task, so please bear with me!
Ever since I have taken interest in my heritage, which
has been for as long as I can remember, I soon realized that my ethnic
composition was quite different than my compatriots. Growing up and
living in the south, I have yet to meet another person who is Finnish, and
doubt I ever will. The people I have met with French origins were
predominately Cajun, while my ancestors were from Québec. Although the
Cajuns were originally expelled from a former part of Québec, the difference
between the two cultures is that of night and day. Ironically, I am
only 1/8 English and I ended up with one of the most "English" of surnames.
At first glance, genealogists, or those erudite in surname origins, would
write me off as a person with dominate English lineage, but my family's story
could not be any further from that common misconception.
Here is my earnest attempt to organize
all of the research I have amassed while delving into my heritage.
I have tried to devise the most efficient format possible, so if you have
trouble finding anything, I apologize in advance and urge you to contact me
for further assistance.
[My Ancestor List ]
Find out if we are related by viewing my
direct ancestors through five generations
Read biographies about the ancestors I
could scrounge up enough information to write about, occasionally extends
through several generations.
[Interactive Family Sheets]
The format lists parents and
their children with dates and clickable links to travel through known
descendants and generations.
Photograph collection of ancestors
and current generations. Women may be listed under their maiden name
(when solo), or married name (when posed with family).
[Helpful Research Links]
•Some helpful links I have
collected along the duration of my never-ending genealogical quest.
[Group Sheet Submission]
If you are connected to any
family mentioned, please submit your information to me for proper
preservation. Dates on the living will remain confidential.
A selected bibliography of the sources
consulted during my research; may also appear in the links section.
