Welcome

This site was created to chronicle and share my genealogy research. It is also a tool for others that are searching for their family members and to see if there is any connection to my family. This is a project that is going to take years to complete. It has been a labor of love, a great deal of fun and quite stimulating.

If you are interested in the various surnames, you can start with the ones across the top of this page or you can look for them in the categories section to the right.

Please leave comments on any of the posts/articles that you read or email me using the form on the right. I do want your feedback, I will try to answer any question, and I desire your interaction. Love to know how to improve this site to better serve you,

Help Me Continue This Research and Keep the Family Tree Online

Martha Clark McMillian

Posted by Tonya Keitt Kalule

I have been working on my family tree again today and yes this is what I did all day. The exciting thing that happened is that I found the parents of Martha Clark , which is my great-grandmother. There was no record of her family in the 1990 family tree. I discovered that she had other siblings as well. This is the beauty of researching the family tree, and there is still so much to do to get this all together. I made several calls today to family members to solicit their help on this monstrous task and all is willing to help. We all have children and believe it to be important for our children to know their family history, to know the people of whom they have descended, and discover how far their family spreads throughout this country.
Knowing who you are and where you are from gives one a sense of pride, a sense of belonging and that foundation is necessary for one to stand tall in who they are.
We always wish that we had asked all of these questions when we were young and listened to all of the stories. There are some families that tell their children their family history whether they want to hear it or not. When they are older and understand the importance of passing on this history, these stories, these children start to pass them on to their children. I don't have a picture of Martha as of yet, but I am hoping as I talk to the many descendants, that someone will have one that has been passed down somewhere in this family.
