Current Projects

Smith Family Home Page
I began my research in 1991, from the time that I was a little boy I wanted to know who were the parents of my great grandfather. Where did they come from? Were the enslaved? Were they free? The answer to these questions and more have lead me on a 9 year genealogy journey. This web site is the results of that search.

Biographical Information

I was born in Mesic a small Town in Pamlico County NC. My parents moved to New York City when I was 7years old. I completed the first grade and followed them to NY in 1950. I lived their until 1988 when I retired to NC to live and to fish.
After our annual family reunion in 1990, I was asked to do the family history for the next family reunion. This was the beginning of my Geneolgy journey. Which has brought me to where I am to day. Sad to say I have not been fishing sence I began my research. All of my free time has been spent in some old documents or microfilm.
