When I began to publish my blog Genealogy Traces last year I combined my husband's and my families and their ancestral lines, but I have quickly come to realize it is too much for the readers of one blog. I will continue tracing my family names Richards, Puckett, Gailey, Stone, Homsley, Cook, Brooks, Brock, Rowbury, Rogers and others on Genealogy Traces but will be using this new blog to properly showcase my husband's family.
His family is from East Tennessee and points further east. Family lines I will be researching are Shubert, Davis, Burns, Delozier, Cusick, Reese, Hitch, Conner, Cofer, Cooley, Brock, Rogers, and Graves. Listed among their places of birth are Pennsylvania, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Cardiff, Wales.
