My name is Troy Young
. This is my family genealogy website.
How it works: I use an offline program called Family Tree Builder to actually assemble the family tree, then I publish that family tree (with only basic information) to this website so that it can be viewed by visiting the "Family Tree" tab.
If you have ANY information to contribute to this project, please contact me either through my MyHeritage inbox or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I will update the tree. Please include all applicable sources with citations, or let me know if you know the person(s), well, personally.
I hope you enjoy the website! I've recently added lots of photos and have expanded the Matthews side of the tree, specifically the Hensley and Keaster families.
I'd like to recognize and give special thanks to Hilda McNaney Woughter and Michael McNaney for their research on the Grace family all the way back to John Howland, the Mayflower passenger, to Joe Ben Shelton for his extensive research on Alexander [Sawney] Brown, which traces the Matthews family back to the Cherokee, to Ruthie Matthews for pictures of the Matthews family & to Sharon Lee McNaney, Scott Young & Dean Young for a great collection of photos of the Young, McNaney, & Grace families. Thanks also to my mother Mary Young and those who helped her in organizing annual Matthews family reunions for years. They've been a great way to keep in touch with the many members of the family, and despite the amount of work that goes into making it happen, I hope that we can keep the tradition.
