My name is Claudette DeLashmutt Fields and I started this site. 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
Hello everybody, I started this little get-together so we can stay in touch with each other. Please feel free to access, add to or comment on anything about our family. Our family is so large, I thought it only fair, that everyone be able to share in creating our tree and hopefully later a book. Please add to this site and invite other family members too!
I would like to keep the site positive...please don't add negative items...save those for another tree...This site is to share happy memories, special photos and good times. Of course, the attached tree will create a timeline for everyone as well as accomplishments. There are so many of us, that the memories should be tremendous.
Come on now don't be shy, share those pictures, stories and memories...It's going to be great!
If you have ideas to build on this site and make it better, please share.
