Please sign my Guest book so I can know who has been visiting....thanks

Eventually I hope to provide information on all of my family lines, including wills, obituaries and short family histories, however at this point the family on which I have the most  information on is the Merritt Family of Putnam/Greene/Orange County NY. If you are interested in my other family lines I have placed descendent charts and occasional information on most of the pages. Please be aware that I have a lot more information which has not been added. If you have any questions you can contact me at 

If you've been here before you'll surely notice this page has changed.  I am in the process of revamping it because my previous page was over 5 years old and was seriously outdated.  

 I am currently working on my Photo Album. If you are looking for the Merritt photos that were on my previous page please see  the photo album link to the left.   I have a LOT more Ancestor photos to scan and am eager to get them online ASAP so they can be enjoyed by all.
