Story
Introduction
I am a New Englander by birth and at heart -- although I have lived in Virginia since 1980.  I was born in Providence, Rhode Island.  At various times I have lived in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Colorado and the District of Columbia.  My family on both my mother's side and my father's side has its roots in New England (Massachusetts and Rhode Island) in the early 1600s.  My present genealogy interests are the Tew, Carpenter, Cooke, Freeman, Hasselbaum, O'Kane, Jeffs, Winkler and Edgar families among others.  I have been dabbling with genealogy research off and on for over 30 years.  I am a member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants; Virginia Mayflower Society; the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (Rhode Island Society); the Order of the Founders and Patriots of America; the New England Historic Genealogical Society; the Rhode Island Genealogical Society; and the National Genealogical Society.
