We are currently undergoing site renovation. Our database is now online. We are working on the balance of the site and hope to have it back by February 15th. Thank you for your understanding.
My dad, David Ross Zorger, passed away on 17 June, 1993 and shortly thereafter I began my life in Genealogical Research. When I first started I had my mom to help and a few Aunts and Uncles still living. I never knew my grandparents as they had died or would die soon after my birth.
01 October, 1999 began another segment in my life as that is the day I became an orphan with the death of my mom Laura Belle (Cheshire) Zorger. I am glad that she had the opportunity to see the growth of her relatives through my research and the help of many others in the Genealogical Community and throughout the world. The internet is truly an amazing thing.
On 19 February, 1999 Marian suffered with the loss of her dad, Richard Otis (Sollee) Yancey, . She still has her mom to enjoy the information we keep uncovering.
Although my addiction may have deminished somewhat it is still here. I made a commitment in my dad's memory to obtain the most complete and accurate facts available surrounding Our Ancestry. I will continue my research in his memory and the memory of my mom's as well as that of Marian's dad.
A question that pops up from time to time is "Why do you have individuals in your database that are not directly related to you or your wife. The reason is simple - At least part of the information I have on some of our direct relatives was obtained through coming in the back door. Virturely every individual in the database is connected and it does help others locate their relatives as evidenced by the following e-mail I received 08 November, 1998.
Just knowing that having Our Ancestry on-line helped in so many ways made me realize its importance.
The information that is maintained in this database is, for the most part, a matter of Public Record. I have fought over the years because some people object to seeing their name here. I have taken this into consideration and have removed the birth dates of any living individuals. DON'T ASK to have your name removed as somewhere someone has provided it to me. It could have been a parent, an aunt or uncle, a sibling, a son or daughter, a cousin, or even your spouse.
You will find in your Genealogicial Research that assumptions have been and are used. For you beginners, and even the more seasoned, remember - -
Let the facts speak for themself and leave
