We are proud to have Deep Roots In The South! And, we would be proud to assist with helping you find your Southern roots, and understanding the history of the places your ancestors called home. Here’s how we plan to do it:
First, we will be continuously adding and updating the tools and resources on our site dealing with the genealogy and history of the South. We will not overwhelm you with a bewildering array of websites – some useful, some not. We will publish only those tools and resources that we feel are useful to you in your quest for your Southern roots. And all will be ones that we have personally used, or at least know to be reliable . We will always be looking for the “better mouse trap,” and if you think you know of one, we would love to hear from you so that we can share it with others.
Second, by providing our News blog, we hope to keep you updated about the latest happenings and developments ing genealogy, with a focus on Southern genealogy. We welcome your participation as we all share our individual expertise and experiences that may help other family historians. One note though: we do not intend to let this blog become just another “Looking for my great-grandpa” forum. Very few people will be concerned about who your great-grandpa was, but may be interested in HOW you found out who he was. Click here to submit your questions or comments.
And then finally, when you feel you need professional assistance, we are here. You may just need that one record or photo a thousand miles away, or just don’t have the time to filter out the seemingly endless information out there. We are offering limited services to begin with, but if you don’t see what you need, we would still love to talk to you about your needs. See What We Do for a list of the services we currently provide. Watch for new services we will be adding in the future.
We’re just getting started, so please be patient. We want to become YOUR source for Southern genealogy and history; and one you will consult over and over. And whether you do it on your own or pay us to help you, we will feel we’ve accomplished our mission if you are able to knock down that “brick wall” or discover that elusive gggrandmother.
So let’s get started!
