About: Lifelong interest in history, especially as it relates to my family tree. Always looking for more than just names and dates, and am especially interested in old photographs. A few of the names I'm researching are: JACOB, WOODARD, SCOTT, BOSSENBERGER, MAC DONALD (MCDONALD), LAUTERWASSER, SCHECHTERLE, WILSON, PHILLIPS, GOODMAN, LOMAS, DUFF, THOMPSON, NEUBAUER, CRADDOCK, CRABBE (Dutch/German), THOMPSON and many more. Other names not in my direct line, but of interest to me are: LACEY, SPURR, MCBERTY, WILLARD, UTIGER, MCBRIEN and so on. Most of my family lived in: MICHIGAN, ONTARIO, NEW YORK STATE, OHIO, ENGLAND, SCOTLAND and GERMANY.
