About FarrisGP

An old soldier, who is well-read and blessed with a good education. My interest in family history was fed by the women of my family, may God bless them! After acquiring my first computer, I discovered tools and a matrix in which to place my data, and developed ways to expand it. With the passage of time, I have traced some of my lines of descent through the Plantagenets to the Counts of Anjou and Normandy, discovered numerous Colonials — even dating back to 1607 Jamestown, at least six Revolutionary War patriots, and I've encountered numerous cousins I hadn't known existed — some of those have become dear friends and collaborators. My mother would have been astounded and proud of the family I’ve rediscovered.
