This website now has information on nearly 2,200 individuals, most recently updated in March 2015. You can see my mother's family, including Precise, Frazier, Womack, and Willbanks, and also my wife's family including Bukley, Browder, and Newton. Most of the family info presented here is from Jackson and DeKalb counties in Alabama.
I'm preparing to add info for my dad's family (Klan and Stumpholl), which will include people from Prussia and the Bukovina region of what is now Romania. Additionally, I plan to upload some old photos and some source document scans.
Contributions, Access, and Privacy
If you have suggestions, corrections, or photos related to the families here, please contact me. Please try to provide whatever documentation you have available when offering changes. I'm very interested in new information and have received some wonderful input from site visitors.
Guest visitors may freely browse records for deceased individuals without logging in. For family members who contact me, I will provide log-in credentials allowing you to see names (only) of living persons, and to see some family-related photo restorations I have done. If any living person wants their name to be invisible even to family members, just let me know. I want to protect the privacy of living individuals while still providing reasonable access to family researchers.
I'm appreciative of the help I've received over the years from my wife Donna (Bukley) Klan, my mother Nancy (Precise) Klan, my wife's distant cousin DeLayne (Newsom) Etherton, and my 1st cousin once-removed Sybil (Bishop) Hinman. Sybil passed away in March 2014, and I greatly miss her. Sybil's love of family and her enthusiasm for family history were (and are) a source of inspiration for me.
I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for taking a look at the site. ~Mark
