Welcome to my little project

Family history is meant to be shared, especially with our siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews. This blog is dedicated to the ancestors who left traces of their lives for us to find and share.

An interactive Rhoades family trees is available to view here, but it is a password protected website that I wish only to share with immediate family. If you are a member of my immediate family and you do not already have the password, please call or e-mail me.
