Hello! I am new to this. I have researched my father's family in the past and it was easy. I am now interested in researching my mother's family. They lived in Eastern Kentucky. From what I was told, the records for that area were kept in a church which burned down. This has made finding my family history on her side a real challenge. So far I have found this line of names starting with my mother's maiden name: Mayabb, Shockey, Landreth, McNabb... I get to the 1830s and everything stops. I could really use help. I am waiting to be approved so I can begin building what I know. Please keep checking back. If you know any information where my tree stops, please message me! Thank you!

Do you know the names of your mother's parents, the state, county and or city where they were born, and the years they were born and their marriage year?
I am inputting the information now, what I have.

Thank you for that. I think I am at the stopping point for my mother's family. I used to know a lot about my father's family but it has slipped my memory. All help is greatly appreciated! DNA coming soon!
Sarah Elizabeth Landreth Mayabb is an issue... In records I have found, she married a man named Hobbs, not Mayabb... also she is related to a Nancy J Landreth on my grandmother's side.... So the record says. Now I am confused.
What's Mr. Hobbs first name?
No first name is given. The record said the marriage was before 1902. I think whoever was doing that tree was mistaken.
