My genealogical pursuits began with a hand-written family tree my mother made for me many years ago. It had some 60+/- names on it. As computers evolved, eventually I acquired some family tree software, and after several retries, settled on one that seems to suit my needs. Long story short, my "tree" is now over 33,000 persons, almost all related somehow or other. Among the surnames in my tree:
Dann, Kessell, Colwill, Bettison, Brownbill, Lawrence, Rogers, Sayre, Moore, Howell, Eddy, Mathewson, Judah, Paddock, Savory, McDewell, Crowell, Chase, Downing, Brailsford, Twining, Young, Paine, Boynton, Snow, Hopkins, Sparrow, Prence, Brewster, Beardslee, Beardsley.
I am particularly involved in Beardslee/Beardsley genealogy. I have several sources available, and a couple of thousand Beardslee/Beardsley's in my personal database (not all added to WikiTree). I have a private list of Beardslee/Beardsley correspondents with whom I share information on a regular basis. If you are a Beardslee or Beardsley and have in interest in my family research activity, please contact me by private e-mail. I am more than happy to collaborate on this family on or off WikiTree.
Also interested in my wife's ancestry, particularly her Pellman (Germany - Missouri - New Mexico) and John Quincy Grant (1852-1922) grandparents.
This profile is a collaborative work-in-progress. Can you contribute information or sources?
