Howdy Folks! Welcome to My Gene Tree.
"It takes about three generations for people to forget. Those that experience the disaster themselves pass it to their children and their grandchildren, but then the memory fades," Fumihiko Imamura, professor in disaster planning at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan.
This is probably true of many memories, especially of family.
As a youngster, I liked reading tales of archeological discoveries. National Geographic was full of them. Through out my life, I have often looked upon my endeavors as "What would archeologists think about this if they ever found it in a million years." So I began this history, a digital tale of my branch of the John Darty King family line.
This site was created using Family Tree Builder provided by My Heritage.com. Daddy, William King Sr. provided the base GEDCOM file from which this was created. Now all we have to do is keep it updated. This is a great system that allows anyone like you and me to create a site for their family and even publish their family tree on the Internet.
Good news ! Everything has changed here. There is a great new offline editor, which now allows tracking multiple marriage, adoption etc. Due to that nifty neat editor there are some errors that have cropped up but, I'm diligently trying to correct them as I find them.Please let me know if you find one

I guess I could mention that the wife and I are currently in Port Saint Lucie, Florida anxiously awaiting the birth of our daughters second child. She is due any day now but, we must return to our Oklahoma Home on May 10th.
The second George Washington was built as German passenger liner George Washington by the Vulcan Works, Stettin, Germany; and launched 10 November 1908. She was operated by the North Germany Lloyd Line until World War I when she sought refuge in New York, a neutral port in 1914. With the American entry into the war in 1917, George Washington was taken over 6 April and towed to the New York Navy Yard for conversion into a transport. She commissioned 6 September 1917, Captain Edwin T. Pollock in command.
George Washington sailed with her first load of troops 4 December 1917 and during the next 2 years made 18 round trip voyages in support of the A.E.F. During this period she also made several special voyages. President Wilson and the American representatives to the Paris Peace Conference sailed for Europe in George Washington 4 December 1918. On this crossing she was protected by Pennsylvania, and was escorted into Brest, France, 13 December by nine battleships and several divisions of destroyers in an impressive demonstration of American naval strength. On her trip home from this voyage, she brought Charles home. George Washington also carried Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin Roosevelt and the Chinese and Mexican peace commissions to France in January 1919 and on 24 February returned President Wilson to the United States. The President again embarked on board George Washington in March 1919; arriving France 13 March, and returned at the conclusion of the historic conference 8 July 1919.
On the last page of Grandpas War Diary he mentions going home on this ship. What is neat this story puts the George Washington in Brest during December 1918 when grandpa came home so it really puts some impact the story.
I just wanted to let you know that Jessica is selling fun shaped pasta for cheerleading. This is probably the only fundraiser that our out of town family can participate in. They have neat shaped pasta, chili kits, chicken noodle kits and cookies. If you want to check it out, the link is
Cell phones and cameras have the ability to geo-tag photos, marking their EXIF files with the latitude and longitude from the GPS in the devices. This information can then be extracted to show where the picture was taken, which can lead to, well, the location of where ones wall safe is...
Some site, remove the EXIF information. Facebook appears to be one of those sites. My Heritage is not. The EXIF information is available to any and all who so desire and have the tools to view it.
Hi, Bill Jr. here. Shamelessy promoting our family web site. Just wanted to tell everyone about a new feature My Heritage has. The My Heritage Toolbar. get it here at the site by clicking on DOWNLOADS then select the Toolbar. It is a quick download and install that works with Firefox and Internet Explorer. Once installed one may conduct searches with Google, one click access to the Kings Web ssite, Instant notifications about upcoming family events (Birthdays, Anniversaries..) and, neatest of all, an integrated Family Chat room. The chat room allows communication between onlline family members via text, video, or graphics. Works like most messengers just seems to be smoother and quicker. SO, be sure and give it whirl today.
Here is the nitty gritty from My Heritage about the Family Toolbar.
2. A useful feature in the toolbar is family chat: an instant messenger that connects you with your family members for text, audio and webcam video chats, for free. The toolbar will display a Chat menu if any of your family members are online, simply select any of them from the menu to invite them to chat with you. Or, you may be invited by one of them to chat. For this to work, more of your family members need to have the Family Toolbar, and then you can chat with them any time they surf the Web. If you haven't invited family members to your site yet, you can do it here.
3. The Family Toolbar will check the calendar on your family site and inform you visually if there are any upcoming birthdays or wedding anniversaries of family members close to you, today or tomorrow. So you won't miss important events. You can even send birthday greetings right from the toolbar.
4. The Family Toolbar allows you to run convenient searches on the Web. Just type your search in the toolbar's search box and hit enter. You can also search for names here, and MyHeritage.com will display on the side powerful genealogy research results powered by MyHeritage.com and enhanced by additional top genealogy databases on the Web, covering more than one billion records.
5. The toolbar gives you one-click access to the most useful pages on your family site. In one click you can visit your site, view its tree, look at its photos, invite more family members, and more. If you have more than one family site they will be conveniently listed in the toolbar.
6. The toolbar supports 26 languages and you can select your language from the drop-down menu on the toolbar.
The Family Toolbar is a new and exciting free product from MyHeritage.com and we'd love to hear your feedback, and your suggestions for more features you'd like to see inside the Family Toolbar. You can write to us at email@example.com
We left OKC at 8:30 Saturday morning, arrived at Texas Motor Speedway around 11:20 am. The Nation wide race was about to start. We toured Fan Row, driver souvenirs and sponsor displays. We hung around out side the track hoping we could crash the gates during the last few laps but it didn't happen. So we headed to our next destination the Residence in in Fossil Creek. After securing our suite, we programmed Gertrude and headed to dinner, Mercado Juarez. I love their Chili Relleno.Stuffed we waddled a few miles back up I-35W to the motel, and hit the sack. Amazing how walking a few miles can relax the body! LOL!
Day 2 Sunday
Arrived at the track about 9:30. Toured Fan row again. Saw a few drivers signing autographs. Found our seats. Now I know rows are numbered from top down. Row 17 put us on the 2nd row from the fence! Until now the loudest ...
I noticed some quirky things going on with the photo albums. According to the memory meter, this site has more photos 'somewhere' that are currently unveiewable. They are all in the “Recent Photos” album. Which can only display 100 at a time. In ninety day chunks. I sent Support an email asking about this and thought I would pass along the response.
Thank you for your mail.
The photos on the “Recent Photos” album stay there for around 3 months.
Every 3 months, our system checks for new photos and changed the photos in that album (you are correct the limit is 100 photos and this number can't be changed).
Please note that this is not a “real” album, but more of a “virtual” album. This feature takes random pictures from all of your albums and pictures and displays them.
Therefore, there is no way to delete or edit photos from that album.
OK so, what happens is, if one uploads a photo to the site and does not specify a folder, that photo stays in limbo on a "New Photos" stack for about 90 days. It may or may not show in the new photos album. If one copies that photo to an album after uploading it. it will become visible in that album and the "New Photos" album, appearing as if there are 2 copies of it. It's not, there is just the one.
So, the thing to remember now is to make sure you upload photos to an album. This way they will be instantly visible.
