Family History

This site is dedicated to the memory of my loving Mother,
Pearl Alice (Long) Draper

Here we honor her by documenting her family history. Genealogy data about people even remotely connected is welcome.

Warning:This site tested only using Internet Explorer. This site requires the use of cookies, popups, and JavaScript.

Much of the data on this site is private. So to see most of this family history, you must have a login. You can get one by just sending me email

Without a login, you are restricted to just the names, dates, and relationships of those no longer with us. With a login there is much more data.

A login also lets you enter and change data. In fact, this site's Software was developed because I didn't want to do all the data entry. So please get your login and join in.

This site as grown to include data on 1273 families, and 4178 individuals. That's too many to display graphically at once. But the tree below is just a starting point. It shows the ancestors, sibling, spouses, and descendants of the person selected to be the Root of the tree.

You can select a different root by clicking on any first name in the tree. Thus, if you know the connection, you can move thru the tree to anyone.
