Let me know you were here - this site is continually being updated (as time permits). I am making every effort to avoid providing information on living relatives. I have not posted, to my knowledge, personal information regarding any family member that I know is currently living unless I have had express permission to do so. My intent for this website is to preserve the memory and honor my heritage. We all have skeletons in the closet worthy of soap operas - airing of dirty laundry is the furthest from my mind, especially, on the internet. What is private - will be kept private...
If you you have additional information regarding my bricks, questions regarding connections that I have made on family lines or additional information that you would like to share in private, have corrections in the data that I've provided, want something removed or would like to add general comments and/or inquiries - please email me by clicking here: Karen*

You will be missed!
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
