My name is Sonja Ratliff but I have always gone by the name Sandi and I started this site so that I could have a place to keep my old photos and the family tree so that they would be available to all my family.
This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This is a great system that allows anyone like you and me to create a private site for their family, build their family tree and share family photos. Please feel free to add pics or stories about your/our ancestors. If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click firstname.lastname@example.org to contact me. The picture on the front is my momma and daddy; Annette Blair and Esley Ratliff, the most wonderful parents in the world and who just celebrated their 60th anniversary together. Love these people so much.
This family tree is added by me and some of the connections are not proven but are my deductions from circumstantial evidence. Please do not take what you see here as the whole truth and if you have other ideas or proof of something that is here. Please feel free to let me know and if you have proof, changes will be made. Until then, it is a jumping off point for genealogy buffs like me.
This site is dedicated to my wonderful Aunt Ginny, Brenda Gail Blair who passed away on December 4, 2010. She is the one who got me infected with the genealogy bug and we spent many an hour discussing, fussing and scratching our heads about the wild and wonderful people who make up our family tree. Her favorite saying was, "dang, our family tree doesn't branch it just goes in circles!" She was right the longer I work on this family tree the more I find that somewhere back in history every line in my tree has married into every other line in my tree. Sometimes I rreally think that I am going to turn out to be my own great-great-great many more great's grandmother. Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 9679 names in our family site. The earliest event is the birth of Herbert Vermandois, Count of Vermandois
(840). The most recent event is the birth of <Private> Russell
(Sep 19 2014).
