Tips on Using This Site

Click on Surname Index in the menu bar above and click through to a person who interests you. Names on Person Pages are hyperlinked to take you to the person whose name you clicked.

When you visit a page, including the Main Page (this page), your browser will cache that page. When you visit a page (including the Main Page, any Index, the Images Page, and a Person Page) for a second or subsequent time, refresh your browser to incorporate any changes that I may have made since your last visit.

No more than one picture appears on any Person Page. If I have one or more additional images for that person, you will see below the displayed picture a small camera icon for each additional image. Hovering the cursor on an icon will display the title of the image. Clicking on an icon will display the image.

The image on a Person Page is usually a thumbnail view of a larger picture. The larger image can be viewed by clicking on the thumbnail. You may want to do that, as usually the detail is much better in the larger picture.

Click on Images in the menu bar to go to a page with a gallery of thumbnails of all Person-Page pictures on this site. In the images gallery, clicking on the arrow above an image will take you to the narrative for the person to whom that picture is linked, and clicking on the box beside the arrow will enlarge the picture.

Sources of Information

I researched some of this information, and some of it was provided by others. No doubt some of it is wrong or at least disputed. ALWAYS VERIFY THE INFORMATION TO SATISFY YOURSELF.

I continue to add source citations as I have time.

If you've got data I don't have, or pictures, obituaries, clippings, or other information, please consider sharing them with me for this site.

Also please let me know if you have information that conflicts with what I have published here.

Offensive Material

Sentiment expressed in some material on this site will offend some readers. The material is provided to help us see what those times and places were like and not to promote, endorse, or glorify those ideas.

Privacy for Living Persons

In an effort to deter identity thieves, I have tried to limit the information on this site to persons who are no longer alive. That's why you won't find yourself mentioned here (unless I thought you were dead!) but perhaps you'll see information about your grandparents.
