JENNIFER'S GENEALOGICAL REALM IT'S ALL ABOUT FAMILY
This page was last updated on: January 7, 2013
America ... land of the free, home of the brave. Genealogy has taught me more about the truth in those words than any history class I ever attended. While to the novice genealogist, or the casual browser these pages may seem mostly lists of names, to the experienced and avid genealogist they tell stories of how our country developed and was made into the land we know today. The lives of these individuals are the basis for the foundation of our country, the dangerous and wild paths they emigrated along stretched this country from sea to shining sea. Each generation has it's own story to tell ... From the first colonists who came over in the 1600 and 1700's to a strange land looking for religious freedom, To the Scot Irish immigrants who blazed the trails of the wilderness looking for land they could own that was cheap or free, To the Native Americans who struggled to maintain their land and their culture amist the white intruders, And to the European immigrants of the latter 19th and early 20th century who were seeking out a better opportunity, we learn not only their names and their families, but can trace the growth of our nation. Each has faced their sorrows and their triumphs, laughter and tears, and with courage and determination shaped for themselves, their families and their descendants a land we can call home. As you browse through these pages, some stories are told, others remain hidden to be found and treasured. Amid these pages you will find murderers and statesmen, preachers and outlaws, mothers and warriors. Looking back allows us to see that while we view our own lives as ordinary, time and history can give it a different perspective. So journey along with me through these pioneers of our past, their lives are what made this country the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Announcement- Ten years on the web and still going strong. Many pages have updated contents and/or formats. Some data isn't updated because there is simply nothing to add. I will get around to changing the formats soon. I still will not publish living individuals, so I may have more information on recent generations. The Leflore family information has been taken down Although untrue, an individual has accused me of plagarism. Even though I have personally researched the data I have, I no longer wish to receive nasty emails from this individual. If you wish for more information on families on this site, email me or post it on the facebook group named Choctaw and Cherokee proud, Panhandle Pioneers, or Hinds Family Descendants, whichever group is relevant to the families you are looking for. I haven't been blogging much lately, but you can find the blog here.
