I am interested in communicating with
anyone who shares the same genealogical or historical interests.
My family tree is private but I want to collaborate on deep ancestors or historical figures.
My life has been a tapestry, woven of threads twisted by my mothers' tragedies and colored with my fathers' dreams. It was framed on the loom of their communities; shuttled by their successes, and heddled with their losses. The tapestry is frayed by lost connections, marred with the holes of missing records, and stained by the overwhelming tide of world events. It's been darned here and there with gossamer rumors; patched now and again with fuzzy recollections. It's a magical tapestry, made of mystery and truth. There has been no other exactly like it in the history of the world, and in the end, it is a beautiful thing indeed.
I am primarily researching Harrison County and surrounding areas in central Kentucky, with a focus on the 19th century. I am always interested in (historical) extended family groups, social networks and interactions, with the long-term goal of better understanding migration patterns of my folk to this area. I also have a fascination particularly with the lives of the women in these groups, the career of anyone who wasn't a farmer (which is not many), and discovering more detail about the ones who did farm. I am sorta kinda playing around with the idea of setting up a one place study for Harrison County. See - I've designed a logo, so that's a start anyway ;-)
