About

I got started in genealogy about 5 years ago, and as most genealogists realize there is only one greater joy than the initial discovery; it is the ability to share the new information, stories and facts with others who might appreciate it.

I am sitting here on a southbound flight afternoon an amazing weekend with the family.  Amazing in the sense that I realize just how much information I have gathered in those 5 years and how much more information I want to gather.

It has been about a year since I took a genealogy trip to Virginia with my mom, sister and aunt..  Since that time I have been pondering how to put a book together.  The project seems so immense, daunting and insurmountable.  I was reading a genealogy article about blogging.  I thought to myself, self, if I can post some of these stories bit by bit, eventually I would have a piece of work that others can enjoy.

My commitment is this.  I will strive to post one time per week at a minimum.  I want to encourage my family to add supplemental stories or questions.  This will be our family’s blog.  At this point, I do not have a plan as to what side of my family will be posted when.  You will have to keep coming back to see.

By the way, I was not an English major, so you will notice that right away.  I will strive for variety, exciting and mundane, as it will be through this whole body of work that hopefully something complete will be formed.

Let’s explore backwards!

  1. I remember slapping a horse fly on Larry Burruss’ back down at the creek and blood flew all over his back. We were at the creek down at Grandpa Sublett’s house!

  2. THE CREEK WAS WAY DOWN BELOW THE TOBACCO BARNS. . ISWAM IN THAT CREEK WHICH WAS FULL OF SNAKES I AM SURE

  3. Krista, if you haven’t already, make sure you connect with my mom. She’s invested a lot of energy on the Whitehead side. Vanessa and I had a great visit about 15 years ago to Oglethorpe County, GA. We visited a bunch of family homes and grave sites. One that really hit me was from a revolutionary war soldier who was buried only a few paces from a small ranch home. The gravestone was small, but it made a huge impression.
