When I began to publish my blog Genealogy Traces last year I combined my husband's and my families and their ancestral lines, but I have quickly come to realize it is too much for the readers of one blog. I will continue tracing my family names Richards, Puckett, Gailey, Stone, Homsley, Cook, Brooks, Brock, Rowbury, Rogers and others on Genealogy Traces but will be using this new blog to properly showcase my husband's family.
His family is from East Tennessee and points further east. Family lines I will be researching are Shubert, Davis, Burns, Delozier, Cusick, Reese, Hitch, Conner, Cofer, Cooley, Brock, Rogers, and Graves. Listed among their places of birth are Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Cardiff, Wales.
"Preserving our Past and Improving our Future" is the byline for
Mountaineer Heritage Park, an area of historical significance in the educational community of my hometown, Mineral Wells, Texas. Blogging about the members, activities, past and present, of the MWHS 50 Year Club and graduates of Mineral Wells High School is the the focus of the Mountaineer Heritage Park blog.
Everyone calls me Judy. I live in the countryside outside of the Hillsborough / Durham / Chapel Hill area of North Carolina with my husband, Bob. This year we will have been married 52 years. We both enjoy a life filled with grandchildren, genealogy, family, and friends. I enjoy blogging about genealogy, cemeteries, and my hometown, Mineral Wells, Texas. You can find me doing research, writing, or making preserves just about any time you call.
