Welcome!

Please read the about page for information on this site. I am not only researching family lines (in particular McKenneys/McKinneys from the counties Belmont, Guernsey, Harrison, Monroe and Noble of Ohio) but also the 19th century Alphadelphia Association, and the freethought community of Liberal in Missouri, and hope to hear from families who were associated with either and individuals with information to contribute. If you have photographs please send them in! Also, of course, I'm eager to hear from individuals associated with any of the personal family lines I'm researching (see the menu, family archives) and looking forward to sharing information. Again, if you have photos and stories, please contribute! People have sent to me some of the most amazing documents and I truly feel fortunate for them and am happy to archive them.
