I first began researching my family in 1994. It turns out that my ancestors included brave pioneers and timid stay-at-homes, as well as upstanding citizens and shameless ne’er-do-wells. Over the years I have come to understand that family is not limited to those with whom we share DNA, but also includes friends, acquaintances, and neighbors, even beloved pets. This website is my way of sharing some of the stories of the people I have found and of the many adventures I have enjoyed along the journey. Please look around and let me know what you think. – Jean Taeuffer
