My name is Regan Chambers, a retired intelligence officer. I have been puttering around genealogy since the 1980s, fortunate to have a cousin who was president of the Tennessee Genealogy Society and gave me the bug when I was a preteen. While I’m no where near a professional like many of you, I am a very avid amateur, and love connecting the dots and putting meat on the bones. Did I say I like cemeteries?
My families wander around the eastern half of the country since the 1600/1700s. The Chambers into Virginia, then North Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. Railroad Irish Quinnellys, also in the South, to Georgia, maybe Maryland before, then across to Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Ruperts/Rupards into Pennsylvania, then some down to North Carolina, Tennessee. Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas.
My lines besides Chambers, Quinnelly and Rupard/Rupert, include Derby, Ayres, Avent, Mask, Lytle, Crouse/Krause, Boerner, Gronle, Schmidt, Seibert, Boone, Lawson, and Gratiot.
I look forward to being an active, contributing member of WikiTree. Thank you for your time.
