Author: Our family histories

Our genealogy traces the family from western and central Africa and western Europe. Our ancestors entered the United States at the Virginia and Georgia Ports. . First cousins Mark Owen and Ann Lineve Wead (it is protocol to use the maiden names of females in genealogy searches). Although Ann has been involved in genealogy research while searching for certain ancestors since the age of 10, the cousins began deeper research of their families during the COVID-19 Pandemic Year of 2020. Devoting as much as 6 hours some evenings to the methodical training and research of genealogy, the cousins completed their year by becoming certified in the growing field of Genealogy. Join us.
