About Me (Us)

My name is Katie and I am fairly new to the genealogy scene.  I started out a couple years ago just trying to help my Grandma find some information online (not her area of expertise) and found that I really enjoyed it.  It gave me the “history fix” I had been missing since college had ended the year before.   I have my Master’s degree in history you see, and with genealogy, I have a good excuse to spend hours doing research or sifting through mountains of books in a library.

However, I am not alone in the quest to answer our genealogical questions.  Nancy, my grandma, and Susan, my mom, also work hard to continue adding to our family tree.  Actually, I probably wouldn’t be further back than 3 generations if it wasn’t for all the work my grandma has done in her lifetime.  She is a true family historian.

I started this blog as a way to share our family history with family out there who may be curious about their roots but don’t know where to start.  I also wanted to start it for anyone out there who may be searching for the same people I am or have been.  If you have randomly stumbled upon our blog, Welcome!  Genealogy is about our shared past, so if you have any questions for me or think you may have some new information to add to the tree, please please feel free to comment on the blog or to email me.

What I envision for this blog is a place to put what documentation I have, talk about what we have and need, share new discoveries, and maybe even write down some tips, tricks, or activities I figure out along the way.  I won’t be posting regularly.  I will work hard in the beginning to get up what I have, but after that it will probably be a bit more sporadic as new finds are more rare at this point.  But, I will always be here to answer comments and email.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and I hope that you have found it helpful.

Happy Researching!!

    I don’t see an email here to contact you, so I will try through this message. I am researching Ocheltree descendants. In particular, Lucretia Tallman was the great-granddaughter of Jean or Jane Ocheltree who married David Williams. Their daughter Eleanor “Ellen” Tallman married Francis Tallman, then their son Charles John Tallman married Mary Elizabeth “Lizzie” Henderson and they had Lucretia Tallman.

    The reason for the contact is we are trying to find as many Ocheltree descendants as possible. We haven’t had a whole lot of luck, so far. Please contact me.
