Lineagefinder is Back

Welcome to, once again. We decided to resurrect this blog for the purpose of sharing information about genealogy and history, families we research and happenings in the genealogy-world.

Genealogy and history are our passion and we love assembling the unknown pieces in to a story about our ancestors. In recent months, I have found an 8th great-grandmother who was hanged by the neck at a Salem Witch Trial. She was later exonerated of her alleged crime of being a witch. I can’t imagine the anguish and sadness her husband and family must have experienced. I have found Jamestown and Mayflower ancestors, too. I am excited to share with you the stories I have found and the lineage of my ancestors.
