My family, my life, my story. This blog is my record of my search for ancestors here in the United States and their countries of origin. It is also a record of my life and that of my descendants. Genealogy is a long time passion of mine and I hope you will join me. My main surnames of interest are Grashoff, White, Chaffin, Wells, Matzdorff, Fogleman, Stinehart, Omvig. Past, present, and future all come together. Preserving the present is as important as discovering the past.
Still working on the Chaffin side and found a man married to one of Brian's "Aunts" from way back -- The poor man's name was Rufus Cheeseman Biggerstaff! The good genealogic item here is that his mother's maiden name was Cheeseman.
