My Dad liked jig-saw puzzles, and I have always said that finding information about people is my version of putting a puzzle together.  You will find that this site contains many people that are unrelated to me.  There are several reasons for this:

  • it is like pulling a loose end in a ball of string, you never know where it will lead
  • you never know when you may find a reference to someone that is suddenly of interest
  • it helps me sort out the relationships of people I grew up with
  • and finally, I just did

The picture below and hand-written copies of TB White's March 19th, 1869 family information kindled my life-long interest in my family's history. This is my great-grandfather, Thomas Boothby White's family. The young girl to the left of him is my grandmother, Myrtle Moffat nee White. She was about 12 at the time of this photo.


Jan 2020 - Each person page contains a link near the top labelled "Pedigree." This displays an interactive pedigree chart that can be used to view up to 5 generations of a family line, and to navigate by clicking the names. If you use CHROME as your browser, and the chart appears to be empty, click CTRL F5, If this does not populate the chart, please let me know.

Previous enhancement - Below the group photo is a box labeled "ID Number." Enter the ID for a person to go directly to their page. For example, ID number 1 is my paternal grandmother, Myrtle Moffat and ID 329 is my maternal grandfather, Fred Summach, Sr.
