I have a passion for family history, especially that of my own diverse ancestors. There are German, English, Italian, Welsh, Scottish, Scotch Irish, and even a few Jewish branches of my family tree. One line leads to the Mayflower, another to Germany via the markets of Brooklyn, with yet another to the original English settlers of Martha’s Vineyard. Veterans in my tree have served in nearly every conflict since the Pilgrims first landed in Plymouth: King Philip’s War, the American Revolution, the U.S. Civil War, War of 1812, World War II, Vietnam, and Iraqi Freedom. Though the vast majority of my ancestors lived in New York and New England, there is one line that connects me with South Carolina and Georgia. Another came to New England from Great Britain via Nova Scotia.
I will be constantly adding content to this site, and hopefully be able to connect some distant cousins and share stories. Don’t hesitate to contact me through the “Contact” page.
