Our Family Tree

Jeff and I enjoy genealogy - me for the puzzle to solve and Jeff for the travel excuse!!  But seriously, it is a great hobby for us to enjoy together.
I source my tree extensively and have lots of pictures to share.  We have both also had our DNA done and I am making connections with those results.

If you would like to browse our tree, please click here.


For Mom
I (Lisa) have recently been tracing the Willliams line of my tree.  I have been learning how to research Wales information online which is a new adventure for me.
And now I'm diving into the Brandsborg and Stelljes branches which are taking me to Germany and Denmark!  So exciting!

My side of the tree consists of names such as Brandsborg, Williams, Schuster, Stelljes, and Woods.




Jeff has recently been tracing the McCown line of his tree.  It has taken us on some interesting trips to Williamson County, Illinois where the McCowns lived for some time.
We would really love to find the connection across the pond and go and visit there!!

Jeff's side of the tree consists of names such as McCown, Brown, Mason, and Wolfe.
