• Descendants and Ancestors, together they are the fabric of Genealogy and Family Tree Research.  Many of the historical aspects of our ancestry are the places and records that describe them in a historical context.  On our Florida Genealogy pages we focus on providing specific information pertaining to the immigration and settlement activity that took place.  We examine historical information that might exist within Church or Probate Records.  Land and tax information from Florida Jersey county courthouses may also prove to be valuable sources to support your family tree. Finally, most of our ancestors may have left final notices in the cemeteries, wills, newspapers, or other record repositories that are available on the Internet now. 

    We are taking an additional step to assist you in your Family Tree efforts by providing focused links, digital records, and other pertinent information using a regional underpinning methodology and one other important tool, distance digital communication tools. We have Galleries that include historical images and records.  Forums to collaborate with others that share an interest in the same area, culture, or maybe even the same ancestral family name. We are providing this site to allow interaction with others, free of charge, to learn about tools, to help each other, or even to understand your Ancestry DNA, and get the most out of the community.

    The content we provide begins with the general ancestry, history, and genealogy information. Then we add our special focus which is towards European immigration, pioneers, exploration, and settlement activity.  Nothing would be complete if we didn't add a bit more specialty information regarding Spanish immigrants and their historical achievements they made while founding various parts of America.

    Welcome! We are presenting quality information and a collaborative environment that will help you discover your family history. Information for how you can contribute is here. I hope you will consider becoming a member which lets you generate topics and share on Facebook to connect with others however, feel free to browse the site.If you have questions, send a message by going to the about us page.

      The GoAncestry Library is coming to you!       We are beginning our efforts to place our physical and digital genealogy and history library on line. This effort will provide Bibliographic information to those areas of the website where they may help you. The hope is to make our library more useful to our members from distant areas.         Initially we will get the Book Titles placed into a new topic, then we will add the table of contents, and lastly we hope to provide some meaningful book reviews.  This effort is beginning to take shape in our Pennsylvania areas. Regional specific books will be able to be found on the county and sate pages. Additionally all of the books will find their way into the forum regions as topics. If you have questions, want some more information, or are aware of material that is included in one of these volumes, you should post your comment directly into that forum topic.        It will take time for us to get the library fully listed. Our current holdings amount to almost 5,000 volumes and I can't seem to stop acquiring more.  We just love the books, they are so helpful and interesting to us that putting them on line for others is the right thing to do.   Be patient, more books are on the way!

      I think it is a common theme really.  Each year as spring opens and the weather allows a release to the outdoors, the website will see a slowing in information.  That is ok, we really love our gardens as well.  I am also a huge fan of grilling foods.  I am not sure any of that will change in years to come either.   We have also taken a grand step in our field research and spent a week primarily in New Jersey with a few stops in Pennsylvania. It was a grand discovery, and yet, it was overwhelming as well. I have yet to go through all of the information that we uncovered.  And again, we found more holes that need attention.  I jokingly tell my bride that I am "DONE" now that I have linked my American lineage to the initial immigrant from Germany.  It is just a joke, there is always more to do. Thankfully so!   In the coming weeks things will settle and we will once again make some time to get more of our information on line.  Expect a wealth of data surrounding the early Tinsmans in America, maybe in Germany as well.  I will see what I can do.  I will also get more linked information posted for other areas.  Finding so many local resources while we traveled has proven that courthouses and societies are very important places to visit, and even make new friends.   I hope you will find something worth your visit, maybe even something Grand!!!!!

      In order to keep moving forward on site site, we understand the need for content and resources that you can use in your research.  We are restructuring our databases to make them more user friendly for genealogy research and bring more unique content to the site. Once we structure the regional information appropriately, it will be linked to other database information from our our GoAncestry Library and our Postcards project.  Additionally, it will allow us to continue to expand our projects for surname and other source data and once again, link it to the regions (s) that are depicted. We hope these additions will occur fairly quickly. Please let us know your thoughts.
