Welcome!

Welcome!
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.

Eugene Dortch cemetery slide show-Ashland, (Hanover) VA

video
Here's a slide show for Eugene Dortch and his wife Georgia Barnette. They were the only ones I knew in that cemetery. Eugene was known as "Uncle Pete" by his family. He was missing one hand and was a taxi driver. The picture of Eugene and Georgia is from Jamie Malogorski. I got the obits at the funeral home. Eugene and Georgia did not have any children.
