What's new?!

IF I can't get around to changing the pages
I'll, at least, place new or updated material, or notices, here on this page,
. . .

just as an attempt to make clarity out of confusion
(or maybe just to add more clutter and confusion - <smile>)

Wouldn't hurt to visit . . . any way.


CHECK OUT these pages, they have nothing to do with genealogy (except that it's where my cousin hangs), but they are super:
Kennedy Space Center Video Feeds
CXC - Resources - Spacecraft Construction Index

Did you notice? I got an Award!! 9 Jan 2000



The Preslar/Presley Family Home Page. A GREAT site with good sources.

British Library THIS IS A GREAT site!! Please Visit, you'll be so excited about the materials available there.


You've just got to go to my NEW cousin,  Gena Ward's Site
PARTICULARLY if you are searching for James Hunts from Georgia (grin)!!!
Boy  does she have surprises for us all!


And then there is The Hogg Surname Centre, very nicely done by Monica,
She's added my great grandfather John McGee's sister-in-law, Rhonda Jane Hogg, to the web page:  "HOGG Surname Researchers"



Why don't you take a look at Linda Hunt Hamlett's page for her line of Hunts.   Linda's Hunt line is from Yell County Arkansas, but is a different line than mine.   You can see it by clicking here for: ALFRED DEWEY THOMAS JEFFERSON AND JAMES DAVID HUNT.




Don't know if you noticed or not,
Jean Brandau [huntsville2@home.com] listed me on her Alabama page for About dot com:  Alabama genealogy site. She also runs a Chat and a few other things there on About.com.

  •   James E. Meggs
    Author of The Meggs Family of North America, published in 1995; He told me that "many of the Meggs clan of North Carolina purchased the book." He also said that "My book is out of print, but I can furnish an up-to-date Meggs gedcom file for a small charge."
