I started working on this tree in 1998. I work on it whenever I can. I will correct errors when I am aware of them. I welcome, and really appreciate, help, suggestions, and corrections... especially from the family that may be closer to a branch than I am. The tree got large, and genealogy software helped make a few big messes in the past. I no longer have subscriptions to new sources, or other sites, so now I rely on the family's goodwill, and I hope a few of you will help me out on it here and there. Thank you all. I apologize now for any mixed up information. If you see any, please let me know.

I know the tree looks empty right now, but all of the media is still here. Not all of it is in the slide show, and some individuals have a silhouette instead of a main picture. I am working on that part, but if they HAD images and documents on the old tree site, they can still be found by clicking the "media" or "gallery" buttons on their profiles.

Additionally, the images now have a watermark for guests, but only if you are not registered and signed in. (The tree, trading post, and community, each have seperate registrations, for obvious security reasons.)

Also, if you had an account on the old site you will have to re-register. I am sorry, but then again I am not. I had to re-build the site from the ground up, and my registration was 100X more complicated than the tiny one you are facing. So come on back over. Help me sort this out. Fill in any blanks you can. I would sure appreciate it.

Love you all,

Mark Watson
