I am using this blog to record my genealogy research progress. My research at this point is concentrated in Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania records. Since many of my ancestors ended up in the Midwest and West my research sometimes takes me in that direction. I also research Irish records.
After attending several webinars on writing your family history I decided to get started writing about the Tennessee Forgeys. I soon realized that I did not have a good handle on the history of the area they came from :(. I have really been studying early maps and all of the early histories I can find online. The early history tends to be somewhat sketchy. I would like to use some statistics about the early population but I am finding that this kind of info was never recorded in late 18th Tennessee. I am finding some very interesting historical info to add to the family history however.
