    I have been doing genealogy research on my family and extended family lives since the 1970's.  When I became disabled in Oct 2000 I began doing genealogy research 4-18 hours a day.  I have completed three family history books for indirect family members, and one family history book for a friend.  I have done an 2500 page ebook library edition of my family history and I am currently editing my full version 8000+ page family history book.  I have successfully proven lines for membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), National Society Sons of the American Revolution (SAR), United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) and United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada (UELAC) to name a few.  I have been presented with numerous awards for my work in the genealogy field.


    Levi Willson Please help the efforts that are underway to have Levi Willson Home/property 5576 Regional Road #25, Milton, Canada designated under Canada's Historic Places. Currently, the house is on the Town of Milton's inventory which means the Town has identified it of having some historical/architectural significance under the Ontario Heritage Act Part IV.

    DNA accepted as Mayflower descent proof Monday, May 28, 2007 - Bangor Daily News

    It’s accepted that John Hawes married a granddaughter of John Howland, Desire Gorham, thus making John and Desire Hawes’ children descendants of the Mayflower.

    They had a son John Hawes, who left New England and popped up in North Carolina. Same person? If so, his issue could join the General Society of Mayflower Descendants.

    Historian General Ann S. Lainhart and Assistant Historian General Alicia Williams recently accepted this line — on the basis of a Hawes DNA study of the Hawes Y chromosome.

    I didn’t necessarily expect a lineage society to accept DNA studies as proof this soon, but I know Ann Lainhart to be a thorough and fair researcher. This use of DNA to join a lineage society is certainly a major step in such research. (Click the "Read More")

    Bureau of Land Management can offer insight on whether relatives used Pre-emption Act Genealogy: Bureau of Land Management can offer insight on whether relatives used Pre-emption Act
    By Tammie Dehler
    Special to the Tribune-Star

    TERRE HAUTE — The Pre-emption Act of 1841 was approved by Congress in September of that year. This act permitted “squatters” on federal lands to be allowed to purchase that land at a low price from the federal government before it went up for public auction. The Act specifically allowed single men, widows, male or female heads of households, and aliens who intended to become naturalized, if 21 years old or older, and who lived on the land for at least 14 months, to purchase 160 acres of land for the price of only $1.25 per acre.
