This is my family tree...
I created this website to help me carry on my aunt Mary Ellen's incredible genealogical legacy.
It contains my family along with a small (but growing) chunk of my wife's family.
The information of living relatives is protected on this site.
The general public will not see any information on these people.
If you find any errors, would like to contribute, or would like to learn more about the database, please
