tracing my genealogy

help me with my Genealogy

So I like to trace Dead people. & It's a hobby of mine (I can remember the time I took a date to a cemetery to look for ancestors tombstones). Some links go back quite a ways.!!

At the bottom of this page, I list a couple books you might want to look for to help in searching various links. Also, if you want to see my Covalt line (from me to John Colt, click here and it'll take you to my Covalt page. 

Now onto my "dead" lines.
