Welcome

My name is Jack Gilchrist and I am the Web Cool Master of this site.

This site has 400+ users (family only), documents 7000+ relatives and has a collection of over 4000+ family pictures.  In some cases our family can be traced back into the early 1500s.  Family names being researched include: Brock, Weaver, Critchlow, Yetter, Gilchrist, McFadden, Ellenberger, Orr, Miller, VanDyke, Hoffman, Stevens, Shaffer, Atwell, Snay and Ghost.

Leave me a message if something in your branch of the tree needs updated.  Feel free to invite other family members to the site, post your own messages or add some more family pictures, etc.

Enjoy!

A site member commented on the photo Roy Earl Carpenter:
 Did you know that Roy Carpenter is the link in our family to the movie star "Jean Harlow"? Flora Alice (Carpenter) McFadden always told her daughters that she was the cousin of Jean Harlow.

Her birth name was Harlean Carpenter, daughter of Dr. Mont Clair Carpenter; but she took her stage name from her mother's maiden name of Jean Harlow.

Obituaries:Deceased Profiles Updated to include FaG References
Posted by: Jack Gilchrist on Mar 22 2013 12:40

For those family members that are now deceased and whom I have either created or found on the Find a Grave web site updates have been completed.

These updates now give the Find a Grave memorial ID # so you may find them on Find a Grave and read their BIO and traverse to other family members, also deceased, that are directly related to them.

I have found the FaG web site to be very helpful in tracking down details about our family ancestors. Many folks contribute to this information and they also frequently volunteer to run down details about our family including finding their burial locations and even taking pictures of their grave markers for us.

I hope this helps those of you who are interested explore our family tree and determine not only how we are related but how our ancestors lived their lives in the "Good Old Days".

This Web site:"How To" Getting your current family genealogy records
Posted by: Jack Gilchrist on Mar 22 2012 11:03

A bug that has existed now for several months does not allow me to post any updates to our family genealogy reports (ancestors and/or descendants) in PDF format. I have been posting all the main family branches each January.

However, I will be happy to generate this PDF genealogy reports, either ancestors and/or descendants, for any person you wish in our 7000 person family tree. Just drop me a line (by Email .. jackgilchrist@yahoo.com) and I will send you the branches of our family history you have requested.

As always, if you see any information that needs deleted, updated and/or added just let me know and I will be happy to take care of it. This includes mug shots as I use the best I can find but you can always send me something you like better.

Jack
