About Me

My photo
Just to tell you a little about myself, my name is Vickie and I was born and raised in Kentucky. The majority of my ancestors have been in Kentucky since the 1790’s. I have always loved history, a good mystery and puzzles and that is what Family History Research is all about. As a child we would take day trips on Saturdays and head down some dirt road looking for old cemeteries. A lot of the time we weren't looking for anyone in particular, we just like to read the epitaphs. We would have a picnic lunch packed and have lunch at whatever cemetery we were at. If the weather was bad my Dad and I would go to a courthouse and dig through old records in musty old basements looking for our ancestors. So as you can see I have had an interest in Family History for quite some time.

My Clients Online Family Trees

Thanks to Karen Sanders for the following: "I was at the Salt Lake City Family History Library, against a 'brick wall' and was leafing through books to kill time while waiting for a friend.  I found the following in a book of wills.  The woman had requested that all the pallbearers at her funeral be female, no men, because: 'They wouldn't take me out when I was alive and they aren't going to take me out now!'"

Rootsweb is still partially down and so the following trees will not be available off and on.  I finally found a site to hold my trees.  I don't have all of them on there yet, but I am getting there.  Here is the link for my new site.  You will need to register to access the different trees.

I Dig My Roots and Branches

The following are World Connect sites I have set up on Rootsweb for some of my clients that have requested that I do so.  A couple of them have taken over the updating of said sites and some have passed away and I am no longer updating their sites, but I have left them online at the request of the clients so that others won't have to do quite so much searching.
