Within the past couple of weeks 20 new research groups have been created!

If you are ACTIVELY researching any of these families and willing to chime in here and there and share your family history with the group, please feel free to join!

Each group has a description with an ancestor and his family listed. Please know that the group is not exclusive to that particular family but to all researchers of that family’s ancestors & siblings!

To be sure you receive all messages for the group, click on “Notifications” and then “All Posts.”

The groups were all recently created so there may not be a lot of activity, but you are free to post and add other researchers of those families!
