I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. My parents moved to Iowa from Indiana in 1966.
I began to build my husband's family tree first, after the death of his father in 2007. I was curious as to where Weeks came from. Using Ancestry, I was able to trace my Weeks family back to 1810 in New York (2nd great grandparents), but have a brick wall as records are scare in New York during this time period.
I've branched out to FamilySearch, FamilyTree and now here on WikiTree, casting the net further trying to catch someone....someone willing to connect and discover the family.
For a long time, I thought we were the only family in Iowa, but I have since discovered there are distant relatives living here on both McCullough (Dad) and Posey (Mom) side.
Have you taken a DNA test? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.
