The BOLD title surnames are my great-grandparents' generation. All info is a work in progress, includes notes for my continuing work and so you must ALWAYS verify information for yourself before accepting such as authoritative. Our work is never done and there are many more stories and information to discover and evaluate. "Those who do not honor and remember their ancestors will never do anything worth remembering."
