 It has only been recently that I have been bitten by the genealogy bug:

Graphic of a Moving Bug
 I knew I was hooked when I began finding stories of murder, mayhem and even a 1600s era witch trial.
(And to think that I hated history when I was in junior high)

During that year, as a newbie to both genealogy and the web, I found tons of other people interested in genealogy and people with web pages that were so willing to help and give me both their time and their advice.
I have found out that this bug certainly is an addictive little fellow!
Follow the links below to find the ancestors of some members of my family tree.
And be sure to let me know if we are related.

 Some of the names I am researching include:
Coonley, Deane, Duchaine, Dreeper, Felter, Felten, Gilbert, Hallenbeck, Joralemon, Lennon, Mackey, McLean, Mynkelaer, Osterhout, Ruggles, Spooner, Vigne, Verplanck

Below you will find some interesting links -- links either to members of my family tree, or just interesting links in general. This is very much a work in progress (and won't be done anytime soon)! I have collected a few thousand names in my family tree (including cousins) and have still not decided on the best format for presenting the information. Enjoy!
