Our ~~ FAMILY TREES ~~ Page

I hope this page will help you in your search for your family past. I shall try to add links as I research my own family. If you can use any of the information on this page, it is fine with me if you do so in your personal search of your family history. So many people have helped me I don't mind sharing what I have found. I do, however, request that you let me know by contacting me. You can use my first name and belindajo.com /// Hey, maybe we are cousins! Thank you, Belinda Jo Adams

I have worked on my family tree off and on for most of my life. But, for the last several years, I have been very serious about it. And, not to just follow trails with no backing, but having proof for anything I put in print. So, now I am ready to start sharing with you my findings. PLEASE READ THE INTRODUCTION. It has lots of information and explanations for what is included in my trees.

I found out researching a family tree is not quite so simple as I thought. The family tree became a family forest! So, I have divided it up into eight trees -- one for each of our grandparents. I will show how the person connects to each of us, then there will be the link to two PDF files for you to look at. The 1st one is the Family Pedigree file of that person; The 2nd one is their Family Story. The 3rd one is their Family Tree.

I updated the Harris / Tatum side in 2018. I plan to go over the Gill / Little side soon to look for updates, so check back in if you want.

NOTE: These 8 ancestors only represent 8 of the surnames that we have. Eache of their mothers bring in another line, etc, etc, etc. Ath the bottome of this page, I have connections to each of those surnames that I have done so far. (Harris-Tatum side) END OF PAGE

Our family tree would be longer and more involved if not for the missing information as in our unknown grandmothers and their ancestors.

Our family tree has over 4000 names in it. And, I did not include most of the children of the grandparents way back. I focused on our line to save time and energy. I did find that we have many surnames that are common in the north and south. My husband is from the North and I am from the South. I have not found a common link for our ancestors so far! Though, the immigrants did come to America all along the coast. Sometimes families went in either dirction. So, probably back in the 'old country' our kin did, at least, know each other ... and maybe here in America, also. Here is a PDF file of our surnames, showing the ccommon ones.

Remember that a family tree is never finished. As I gather more information, I will update this. If you have any questions, corrections or input, you can contact me at .
