I have been researching my mother's and father's families for about 3 years. I decided to launch this blog as a way to share some of what I have learned with other family members. Also, it is my hope that I will hear from "cousins" who find that we share a family line.
Why the title "Mountain Laurel Chronicle"? I discovered that many, if not most, of my direct line ancestors in this country settled in Connecticut (on my father's side) and Pennsylvania (on my mother's side). I wanted to acknowledge the significance of these two states with a reference in the title of the blog. After a little bit of digging I found that the state flower for both Connecticut and Pennsylvania is the mountain laurel. A happy coincidence!
