Family Affair

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

Fellwood's History- My Mother's History

Posted by Tonya Keitt Kalule

Just wanted to share what I came across on my facebook page from a guy many of you know from Savannah, Georgia.  David Coney, who grew up in West Savannah has written a poem about a housing project that has since been demolished, Fellwood Homes; this is also the housing project that my mother moved into when she was only 2 years old, along with her oldest sister who was 13 and her baby sister that was only 4 months old, along with their parents Maxie and Esther Ryals.

  The photo that David used in the poem was taken in 1949 of my grandmother hanging clothes on the line along with her two youngest daughters and my mother is the one handing her the clothes pins.

This photo is also featured in the book, Low Land and the High Road: Life and Community in Hudson Hill. West Savannah, and Woodville Neighborhoods, by Martha L. Keber, on page 43.
