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.

Mary Walker & Pearl Walker Reams

I did an interview with Mary Walker & Pearl Reams, on Labor Day 2005. Right now the interview is in document format, and I can't upload that format on the blog. This interview was printed in the "Southside Roots" Nov 2008. The Southside Roots is a booklet printed by the Southside Historical Society, of which I am a member. Frances Clark near Boydton, Virginia (Mecklenburg County, VA) leads a team of great people trying to preserve some Southside History. I find their efforts most helpful, since I am not a local or old timer. The Southside includes several counties including: Mecklenburg, Brunswick & Lunenburg County, Virginia. See attached link. I also added a link to the historical society in my favorite Virginia genealogy website links posted on this blog.
