Branching Out

What's New?

This is my family tree, although I can't take credit for starting it (the family, that is!) or charting it (the tree, that is). Here's me, or you can look at my children's family tree, or you can browse through the list of names in the index below.

The genealogy is presented using David Croft's Family Web scheme. Each person has a page listing their parents, their siblings, their spouse(s), their children, and basic information such as birth and death dates. Links between the pages let you easily navigate the tree of relations.

My sources of information for my father's side of the family are:

My sources of information for my mother's side of the family are:

My FAMILY WEB tree includes a number of branches not in my direct lineage, but which lead to distant relatives that I know/knew or that I found interesting. For example, Bob Geis was a close friend (and a somewhat more distant relation) of my grandmother Ivey and a fellow genealogist; I saw him every few years and Grandma often talked about him, his wife, his daughter, and his grandchildren. I met his sister, Margaret (Geis) McFarlane, an elderly beautiful woman with a natural air of sophistication - not something you would expect in a relative of mine! - at my grandmother's viewing. Rev. Charles Read, another close friend of my grandmother, performed the funeral service for my Aunt Louise.

The Abraham Lincoln branch is, I came to find out, somewhat suspect; see the note on the Nancy Hanks page for further information on this controversial subject. My version of the Lincoln branch was taken from The Shipleys of Maryland 1968, with some dates and names fleshed out from various Lincoln-Shipley genealogies on the web; I didn't attempt to resolve any inconsistencies I found between the book and the on-line genealogies.

I would, of course, appreciate receiving any corrections, clarifications, further information, notification of related web sites, reminiscences, or whatever. In addition to my wife's family, I am especially interested in tracking down more information about the Iveys, the Schriners, the Radeckes, and the Sparks - come to think of it, I would love to find out more about any of my relations.
