Thank you for checking out my site! I hope you found it helpful. My goal is to collect and share as much information about my ancestry as possible. I believe that family information belongs to the family, not individuals. Anything on this site is free for you to reference or use in your own research. Almost everything I have collected over the years is already on my website and what isn't, will be soon. If you do contact me with questions, reference the family name and some dates. Throw me a bone! Be mindful that some of my family names stopped 300 years ago. So, I probably won't have any information on your grandfather. The exception is the Olin family which is heavily documented. Finally, please feel free to sign my guestbook. It's always fun to see who is checking out my site.
SEARCHING: Use the Pico search engine on the left to find your family names. Try alternate spellings.
PRIVACY: I have a policy of not including any information on living relatives on this site.
This is to protect my family. I also do not put full email addresses on my site. This helps to protect my contacts from spammers. If you need to copy the actual email address, just right-click and choose "copy link."
ERRORS: I am not perfect. Please let me know if you notice any spelling or grammatical errors, missing links, etc. Also, I fully expect my information to be challenged. I do not take this personally. I am grateful for your diligence! Please contact me with whatever information you have and reference the URL and provide some proof of your change.
SHARING: If you are a family member, or if you would like to put a query on regarding a shared surname, please contact me. I would be happy to put your information on my site and will credit you as well as provide a contact link to you.
LINKS: I set the links so that they open in a separate tab. Some very long pages are saved as a .pdf, so you can click on the Acrobat icon and print from there if you prefer to read from paper. Once again, let me know if there are any broken links. A lot of the charts have links so hover over them.
