Genealogy Main The Nodwell Genealogy Project researches the Nodwell, Backman, Osborne, Hay, Crowder, Sloan, Manning, and Dickey families. http://genealogy.nodwell.net/component/content/frontpage Tue, 21 Nov 2017 15:42:10 +0000 Joomla! 1.5 - Open Source Content Management en-gb Nodwell Genealogy Project http://genealogy.nodwell.net/blog/45-nodwell-/84-nodwell-genealogy-project http://genealogy.nodwell.net/blog/45-nodwell-/84-nodwell-genealogy-project Shortly after my first child was born, I gathered up all the family history and genealogy research my Nana and Nomin had done when I was a little girl, and started putting together a family tree of my child's ancestors. I had a great wealth of information to work from on the Barbee, Crowder, Simmons, and Laney families. As a child, I had attended Barbee and Laney family reunions every year with Nana and Papa, and Nomin or Mammaw. I think my interest in genealogy was sparked at these yearly pilgrimages to reunite with cousins and and bask in the glow of an almost overwhelming sense of belonging. When I started looking into my husband's ancestry, his mother's lines had a good deal of Osborne and Hay family information, but the Nodwell lineage was a fairly complete mystery.

I elected to start with my husband's and my grandparents and follow those eight families back through time as far as possible. The Nodwell Genealogy Project is the result of that research. The main ancestries I am tracing are Nodwell, Backman, Osborne, Hay, Crowder, Sloan, Manning, and Dickey. My ultimate goal is to have documentary and anecdotal information for as many of the ancestral families as possible.

Feel free to browse my tree. Living data is hidden in the public version of the familiy tree here. Registered users can view living data for anyone they are related to - just shoot me a note here if you think you're connected.

Research Requests http://genealogy.nodwell.net/blog/45-nodwell-/183-research-requests http://genealogy.nodwell.net/blog/45-nodwell-/183-research-requests I receive a lot of requests for information, and I am happy to respond to them all. Sometimes the requests are more than I can answer in a few minutes of email reply. While I will continue to respond to all requests as I can get to them, and I will continue to answer where I can do so quickly, I have decided to offer more thorough responses as a service.
