This might help someone a lot that is looking for such records. How did you get started doing this?

I've had a horrid time of finding any info on my mother's side - that's the side with Native Americans. On my father's, I'm related to a boatload of politicians and pundits. It makes my head spin.

I started doing genealogy "for hire" about 1970. I retired about a 5 years ago due to medical problems and in April started with online writing for AC and this weekend started with Hubpages. I decided since I have 40 years of genealogy I would put this type of information on Hubpages. I know this doesn't answer your question but getting started in genealogy now and the way I did then are two different things. The best way to get started now is to ask for help at a local Family History Center that is attached to a LDS Church. Just call a local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and ask for the location of a FHC. Then call them and ask for help. Hope that helps.

Great information. Most of our families arrived in the U.S. in the last 100 years and we know all the American side of the families, but I have a couple of branches which have been here at least 200 years and one may have been at Jamestown (1644). One of these days I'd love to find out more. That is a great idea to post things here that might help people. You might want to advertise books from Amazon which would help people get started on this. I'd be interested in something like that.

You are welcome. Glad you enjoyed it. You will have to share your line with me sometime. I only have Bob Colston's lineage down to Geverene Johnson. Abe Womack was my husband's line.
