My name is Laurette Alaniva
and I started this site. My mother, Elaine Prothero Alaniva, started researching our family tree in 1979. This site is not just about the "begats" of our family. I have my grandmother Lillian Filpula Alaniva's old photo albums for the Alaniva side of the family. For the Prothero side I have detailed geneologies that were done for Clifford Stoddard many years ago that he gave to my mom. Fascinating stuff! There are pictures from pre-1900 right up to present day. I am scanning these photos in order to preserve them for my children - and yours! I hope that you will view one of the slideshows that are available. (If you are a Site Member you can receive an email whenever I post new content.)

Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 1527 names in our family site. The earliest event is the birth of Richard Miles (1390). The most recent event is the birth of <Private> Vasquez (Nov 16 2010). The site was last updated on May 24 2013, and it currently has 80 registered member(s).
