Welcome

This website was started for our large extended family to collaborate on Family History.  It is a central repository of the knowledge, traditions, photographs, stories and facts that make you who you are. 

The central line of this website is originally the Lynes family, starting with Samuel Lynes, born 1720 in South Carolina, extending through all the descendents to the present. Of course since people marry, it extends back through other families in all directions, connecting to French Huguenots in the early 1700s, the Swiss emigrations of 1735 into Georgia and South Carolina, and of course England and other British Isles.  It includes Haynes, Herrons, Caddells, Higingbottoms, Foxbank Plantation, births, marriages, and working on the Savannah River rice plantations, associations with the Ball family plantations, Berkeley County, St. James Goose Creek, and final resting place confirmations.  You will find Johns, Emilys, Williams, Issacs,  and more Samuels than you can shake a stick at, even a ship named Samuel. 

Please consider this YOUR website.  If you have a connection, we would love to count you as a cousin.  Once connected, you are encouraged to upload photos, input facts, add people, record traditions and stories that you know. Describe people, interview older members of the family, and record their recollections. If you need to know where to put things or how to use the site, please contact me.  Once we are recorded here, it will never be lost.

If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me, Jack Lynes.  I am also active on Facebook: search "Jack Lynes." 

One suggestion: when you click on "family tree" I prefer the "Classic View."  Both views have their advantages. But browse and get to know your family.  If you need any assistance, please let me know.

***THIS IS A PREMIUM SITE, WHICH MEANS WE HAVE UNLIMITED PHOTOS AND DATA CAPACITY***

"Genealogy Without Documentation is Mythology" and we will try to put sources with every single relationship in time.

Now for the boilerplate:
Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 19617 names in our family site. The earliest event is the birth of Dupree HENDRIX (Dec 10). The most recent event is the birth of <Private> Lynes (May 1 2014).
The site was last updated on Apr 15 2014, and it currently has 330 registered member(s). If you wish to become a member too, please click here.   Enjoy!
