Moving to the lake in NC and my Mayflower Ancestor

May 19, 2007

I am doing everything I can to stay absolutely focused this month.  I have many different things to do from starting up a business to maintaining my websites and my publications completing renovations on my existing home and moving to a new home in North Carolina.

On top of that I'm going to take a quick trip to Illinois to visit my new nephew born late last month and see my family.  I recently found some very interesting information about family history and so going to do a little bit of genealogy research as well.  I received a phone call out of the blue three or four nights ago that provided me with some information that is helping me rapidly track a great deal of information about my ancestors.

I've been collecting information on my genealogy for many years now and I have several other relatives of the vast amount of research on different branches of the family tree.  This week I've managed to identify several new branches that no one has yet found and I'm filling in a number of gaps essentially putting the jigsaw pieces together and I'm starting to get very large big picture view of my genealogy.  So as I contemplate nc waterfront property possibilities, I am also going to be reflecting that many of my ancestors moved away from the exact area that I am moving towards in just a few weeks.

In fact I have ancestors that lived all up and down the East Coast of the United States.  By 13th great-grandfather came across the ocean on the Mayflower along with my 13th great grand uncle.  I also have a very distant cousin named Button Gwinnett.  He was a representative from the state of Georgia signed the Declaration of Independence and I today live in the county named after him, Gwinnett County.
