I realized quickly that I’d have to “think outside the box” to learn about my ancestors. I LOVE to interview people, and listen to stories about "the older days" when life seemed a little slower and simpler. I study USGS maps, plats, read chanceries, look for long forgotten cemeteries and try to help preserve memories people share with me. This blog is ad free, so it's easier to focus on sharing stories. Feel free to sign the guestbook, or join the FaceBook group. Even if we aren't related by DNA, I'd still love to hear about your research efforts and family stories. I am interested in posting (to this blog) stories relevant to the Mecklenburg-Brunswick families.

6 stars for Celeste & 4 stars for Julie !

These are the children of Fannie Gray & George Stowe. I also have 4 siblings in the military (My 4 stars). And a future brother-in-law in the military. My father served 20 years in the US Air Force. My mother has 4 stars hanging in a window near the front door, the way stars were displayed during WWII. Happy Memorial Day!
