My earliest colonial ancestor in the Plymouth Bay Colony, 1621.
When I started investigating our colonial ancestors, I had no idea that our family first arrived on American shores in 1621. This was just one year after the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth Bay. As mentioned in the last post, a...

Dick, I was asked to share this specifically with you. This project has been a three-year project. It began as a Make-a-Difference Day project and has resulted in a database of 11,400 gravesites of Civil War veterans in Hamilton Co., OH. We added them to our website to coincide with the celebration of our nation's independence.
