What I value most is the godly inheritance and heritage I have gained from my ancestors. I treasure the stories of the people, but I've learned that to research these things we need to know our way around genealogy databases, charts, and computer GEDCOMS. During my caregiver years for my parents, and for some nine months caring for Gr'ma Kroeker too, I learned to check dates carefully, key everything into my Brother's Keeper program, and to read the charts it would spit out.
I first set up this website in June of 2006, looking for others who would be interested in my finding and reports. Then, when Dad, my remaining parent died, I had to see to it that I had ways and means of supporting myself. Life just got super-busy for me. This site was neglected. But now I'm refreshing everything, and will automate some things. I need to apply things that I have learned in my work the last six years to improve your experience here.
So which family trees am I connected to, you want to know? Where might we have bloodlines in common? Well, here's links to my largest and main family lines. Look them over and see whether our lines intersect at any point.
Incidentally, if you are of Mennonite heritage, or married to a Mennonite, you may already be in the HUGE GRANDMA database. Many people contribute to it and an updated edition is put out every second year or so. Okay, I have an offer for you. If you subscribe to my mailing list to keep updated on things happening here, I will do a quick search of the GRANDMA database I have, and also ask it in what ways you and I may be related. I will send you the results by email!
Go to this form to subscribe and give me the clues that will help to identify you as the right person in the database: Subscribe and ASK for this research as my Favour to you right HERE!

You may just have found your Mother LODE or LINK "relatively-speaking." My charts MIGHT have just what you need to connect some of YOUR OWN Ancestors! But I'm a story-teller, so . . . will you give me time and space to tell it well?
