Welcome to the Woodlief Research list!
If your ancestry includes a Woodlief (Woodliff, or any of the many variant spellings) anywhere in the world, then you've found the right list. This home page serves to keep our list running smoothly. Our list has a great history, even preceding Rootsweb. Through our collaboration, we've found many connections and made many friends. While not all Woodliefs descend from the same common ancestor, we share a great kinship in our collective search for our history. As always, if you have difficulties or need assistance with list related matters, contact me. Best of luck with your research, and I look forward to reading your list messages.
