To Remember Our Past...Is
To Honor Our Family!!
Recently acquired Dream Weaver 4 and Flash 5. Once
I am familiar with these programs, my pages will
be redone, hopefully with more style!
I hope to update my HR Ancestors files soon. My current
job position and my children and home (you know, with Spring,
gardening and cleaning) has taken up alot of my time.
Things should slow down soon and I can resume my genealogical
research and web designing.
Will be adding shortly about the symposium we went to on 31 March 2001,
regarding the Croatan Indians and the Lost Colony.
That link will be found on the Midgette family link below.
(boy, am I behind on this one!!!)

MY LATEST AWARD!!!!
Thank You Richard, for this honor!
Come on in! I have set up a place where messages can
be posted, chat sessions can take place. You will have to sign up to get
a Yahoo screenname...but it is FREE!!! It does not matter what internet service
you use, as long as you make a screenname for Yahoo! Please note: This site
is for GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH for the Hampton Roads area only and not a place
for general chat time. They have chat rooms for that type of socializing.
If you abuse this website, you will be removed.
Current Hampton Roads Population
Counter restarted due to the fact that
"I messed up!! Oops!!"
(Last counter count: 9,617 from October
26, 1998 - February 7, 2001)
So happy you were able to stop by. Hope you find what
you are looking for and if not, just ask and I will see what I can do for
you! Please sign my guestbook!
At this time, I am unable
to do any research. You are more than welcome to request,
but I do not know when I will be able to start back researching.
I only search the Norfolk, Virginia Beach (Princess
Anne) and Chesapeake courthouses. Due to limited time, I am unable to go
to Portsmouth, Suffolk, Newport News or Hampton. If anyone out there is willing
to search these areas, please notify the WEBMASTER and I will post your
information here for others.
When requesting for look ups...the more info you
are able to provide, the better the chances of a successful finding! Please
don't request a search such as: Died about 1906 and expect
me to find an obit in a day or two. In 8
hours, I can only search a month & 1/2 of newspapers
on microfilm. You can still make your request, but
just understand, I cannot say when the
info would be found.
Your patience is GREATLY
E-MAIL for any requests
on obituary and/or courthouse look ups, if you have found a
family connection with us, or provide feedback on this

My Military Days
In the Spring of 1974, my Mother asked me where
could I get a good job, paid every two weeks, 3 square meals a day and a
free education. Of course, I said "AT HOME"? Her reply: "The Air Force"....so
on 12 July 1974, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy (well, since when did a child
always listen to their parent?)
Below is link to some of my Navy experiences.
I served 20 years 8 months and 17 days and have no regrets (maybe some
embarrasing moments), but nonetheless, no regrets. It was the best advice
my Mother could have ever given me. So, please sit back and enjoy, as you
and I revisit my adventures.
