Joseph: Glad to add you as a friend. My Great-Great Grandfather was William Virginia Boyett, he left his family in Il and went back to Tnn and started another family and I can't find any informaiton on them
You can go to www.sar.org. There is a lot of great information to get started under the membership section. You should start with a local chapter. They will be able to provide assistance in getting your application together.
