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.

Mecklenburg-Brunswick Gold Star Veterans at Virginia War Memorial

For more information, I highly recommend a visit to the monument, or at least a visit to the website. Here's the memorial's contact info:

See the two blog posts on 9 Mar 2013 with pictures to go with these names, and pictures of the monument. If you see a picture with a name on it you are interested in, email me, and I'll be happy to send you the picture. I take pictures for archiving and preservation.
