Dear Friend or Family,
Welcome to my page! I've always loved history, and I've always been curious of-not only my own origins, but of the many connections we have to each other, across nations, and throughout time to the very beginnings. My family was somewhat separated by the premature death of my father, Gerald, in 1972 (and my mother moved us out West to California from Alabama). I've built on years of interviewing my oldest relatives, culling information from booklets from family reunions, as well as scouring libraries from Northeast Alabama State College, to California State University, Long Beach. An essential resource throughout has been the book, "The Clays of Alabama: A Planter, Lawyer, Politician Family," which I've read from cover-to-cover. I've also connected with a cousin diligently working on our American connections. It has been easy to connect with many others after I established overlapping connections to Charlemagne--and I've found this to be pretty common, as some regard him as the ancestor to "everyone in the West." Following from that, I've connected with several through Facebook, and it's been fun to find where our lines converge. You can e-mail me at Kevinengland7@gmail.com if you're interested. Despite hard work, I have many gaps and there are many recent relatives (even living) that remain nameless. If you knew my family in Alabama and Tennessee (or literally "are"), and would like to help me fill in the blanks, please contact me (and also, if you have pictures to share).
