Welcome to Heartland Genealogy! Since my family has been in Kansas for several generations, I am truly a product of the Heartland. Genealogy is my hobby. When websites were in their infancy, I created a site to share my research. Since every website needed a name, I named that site, ‘Heartland Genealogy’. Over the years, the ways that I’ve freely shared my research have evolved. But one thing has remained – the name ‘Heartland Genealogy’
Below is a list of my 2nd great grandfathers and their Kansas connections.
- Briles, Alexander – Coffey County, Kansas
- Washington Marion Crawford – Ford County, Kansas
- Currey, Hiram – Leavenworth County, Kansas
- Hammond, Richmond Fisk – Ford County, Kansas
- Hutchinson, Albert – Doniphan County, Kansas
- Mentzer, George – Woodson County, Kansas
- Ricketts, James Marshall – Woodson County, Kansas
- Wells, Thurston Kennedy – Allen and Woodson Counties, Kansas
This site is an attempt to resurrect my site on RootsWeb (currently offline). I will also post projects as I get them accomplished.
Prior to 2015, I used The Master Genealogist (TMG) to record my work. Along with TMG, I used John Cardinal’s Second Site software to publish my genealogy data online. The Wayback machine captured my 2014 Heartland Genealogy site. Since TMG ceased support, I investigated various software options. Even though I didn’t found a solution that provides the same level of customization provided by TMG, I elected to switch to RootsMagic.
Due to that switch, I am in the process of syncing my research with Family Search. On FamilySearch, my grandfathers are Leon Crawford (LDQQ-PVCC) and Edward Osmund Briles (LWYR-98X).
Some of my data is also on Ancestry.com — Heartland Genealogy.
Since RootsMagic will publish my genealogy data online for free, I have elected to use their tool instead of purchasing space to host it online. My Heartland Genealogy RootsMagic data
I am trying to record some of the family stories in my blog and write about my genealogy experiences in a blog. Much of those writings were posted on this Heartland Genealogy WordPress blog. However, I had switched to Blogger but am switching back due to changes in the Blogger editor. Since I have quite a few CRAWFORD posts on my Heartland Genealgoy Blogger site, please check it out. I also have a website, Heartland Genealogy (of course), where I have resurrected some of my old sites.
