History and Genealogy

 

 

 

WELCOME

 

††††††††††† Welcome to the History and Genealogy pages of Michael D. Allen and Barbara A. Bailey.This collection of information, anecdotes, and photographs represents our on-going efforts to research our ancestors at least back to the time of their immigration to the United States.The most intriguing result of our search is the discovery of how much the story of our ancestors is the story of the western world itself.Each era had a character and soul.Our forefathers from the 18th century fled tyranny and despair in the hope to see a country born.Those from the 19th century fled the famines and the economic collapse that battered the old world.Finally, those from the 20th century fled the destruction of the great first war that finally smashed the lines separating the ancient cultures of Europe.

 

Itís important to know where you came from, to see your ancestorís face in a crumbling photograph, because in a small way, you yourself were staring into the lens of the camera, and into posterity.That trait, whether the color of her eyes or the sparkle of her character, still walks in you.Genealogy carries both immortality and timelessness, the future as well as the past.We have included narratives here in an effort to capture some of the wonderful essence of life that is lost in a mere list of birth and death dates.

 

Of course, the story is always growing, and we hope you will bring any treasurers that you may have.Please contact us at the email address listed below if you have any comments, suggestions, or any fresh chapters of the grand story that you would like to share.
