My Davis family is from Michigan.    My dad, Alva Weagar Davis, was born in White Oak, Ingham County, MI.   His father, Charles Clark Davis, was born in Ann Arbor. 

My dad's name was Clyde Davis, and he was born in Onaway Mich. His dad's name was William Wallace Davis.

This is very odd because my MOTHER'S name was Clyde Davis! 

What year was your dad and gfather born? 

I'm new here.  Hi everyone! 

I research mostly on my father's side:  Davis, Weagar, Ruckel, McGowan, Brewer.  Those ancestors are mostly from NY, PA, MI and OH.

I also research my mom's side:  Riner, Mathis....   Mom's family was from Georgia. 

I am 63 and have been doing genealogy for about 10 years.  My parents married and moved to Arizona and that's where I live.  I love it when I can find newpaper articles or history about my ancestors.

Thanks!

Good morning, I too am new to this site, and have been doing genealogy for about 10 years.  I am researching Lam (Lamme/Lamb) in Virginia and Wyoming, Klingensmith and Lininger (Pennsylvania and Wyoming) , Hotchkiss (Connecticut), Sladek (Mostly Illinois and the Dakotas), Vermilyea (Mostly South Dakota).

 I'd especially love some assistance in tracking down William Lam (he also spelled his name Lamme and Lamb), born about 1785, from Rockingham/Rockbridge Counties Virginia.  He married Elizabeth Ware (or Weir) about 1808, and had sons John and James.  There are too many William/Elizabeth/John/James families in that area at that time-- confusing.  This is not the Lam family which married into the Shifflets, and I do not think this is the William who married Elizabeth Givens (or Guivens), though there is some evidence that he may have been her son.  

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

Hello everyone,

I am new to Genealogy Research and new to this group.  I was born in New York State. I did not learn that I was adopted until later in life, once both of my apopted parents had passed away.  This I guess is due to their fear of my rejecting them, but, as I had never inquired when they were alive, am only guessing.

I am now looking to locate information regarding any biological brothers and sisters I may have, and get to know them better.  I have a name of my biological mother, Frieda (or Freda) Newberger (other spelling are possible), but the 1940 US Census likes this spelling.

I am looking for assistance of any kind to find any information about my "real" family. and any assistance - be it suggestions, recommendation, or anything else, will be appreciated.

I am able to write well, and can develop articles, should this be needed.

Hi all!! I have been my family "historian" forever, it seems. I have been fortunate in most of my findings, but now have reached many dead ends. My searches have lead me "across the Pond" and to some very interesting churches and libraries. I guess I became interested with the first stories of my birth. Most little kids ask their Mom's...where did I come from. For me, I was lead down a path of possible psychic connections!! My maternal Grandmother was born with a "cowel" over her face. It was thought that she was able to foretell the future!! So I started to dig into our past. I was hooked!! A story of how Thomas Tupper came to America and settled in Sandwich, MA (USA) in 1629 sent my mind whirling. I needed to FIND him/them. Everyone! I am a searcher for life...Bell, McDermott, Tupper, Hines, Andersen. These are my "kin folk". I long to see pictures of them all!!
