Family Genealogy

WELCOME TO MY FAMILY GENEALOGY!

 

Ped·i·gree

The recorded ancestry, especially upper-class ancestry, of a person or family. Also called: ancestry, lineage, origin, heritage, parentage, bloodline, or roots.

After doing my family genealogy for over 12 years, I have made many new and surprising discoveries–many of which I will share on these pages and give some history of my own genealogy.

Everyone has 2 parents, 4 grandparents, and 8 great-grandparents. Due to slavery, at this time, I only have six known surnames of my great-grandparents:

Williams

     Adams

          Gore

               Benton

                    Huff

                        Byrd

There are many more grandparents as you progress farther back in time, but everyone should begin their genealogical search at this point and work backward.
