What are my favorite Original Family Narratives? PEARCE-AUSTEN, LESLIE (under Gray family), CHRISTIAN MILLER (see Hannes “Indian John” Miller), and LEE (see Krause-Tommy Lee.)
NEW ONGOING: “Vitals” for each couple, including ancestors, descendants, locations, & more (click on first names in family trees)
IDEA: If you’re from one of our families, why not “save” that family tree file, then replace my name and descendants with yours, then print. and distribute! (I hope you’ll share this with my readers and me.)
