  1. You are luck you can go back that far. I have only made it to the great grandparents, then we switch to Europe and my brick walls. If you have the answers and dates you can look for the documentation.

  2. Hi Claudia ~
    You are so right - at least I have a starting point. I was also lucky with another part of my family - my Dad's paternal grandparents were both born in Scotland. Scotland has so many records available on line that I was able to go back a number of generations in Scotland while sitting at home!

  3. I see Louisiana somewhere in your tree and so I linked to you today. I hope that you don't mind.
