About The Kathy Londo Barnes Genealogy Quest
Please sign in to see more.
Because of a computer crash, I recovered work that ended up with many holes in it.  I  am currently attempting to fill in the holes and have learned a hard series of  lessons.  I located my back up disks and (sadly) they were dated 2005....On August  23, 2009, I took on the huge task of combining all of my files into one so I could  place all of my information on the page here at Tribalpages.  If you find any  information that is not correct or find multiple listings for the same person, please  let me know and I'll do everything in my power to fix the problem.  I can be reached  here or at my e-mail addy, digginroots@yahoo.com.  If you're offering a correction,  please send me your source and I'll make sure it's documented.  Please learn from my  mistakes and back up your files frequently.  I'm trying to catch up for the three  years of research that I've lost besides....

The information contained in the Kathy Londo Barnes Genealogy Quest page, is  an on going work.  Since having children and losing parents, I've come to  believe that it is very important to know about your family.  I like to think  of it as "a look at the past and a vision for our future"!  This is a huge  hobby to me and I take the accuracy of the information, very seriously. Not only do I  think it's important to know where your family came from and what they encountered  along the way, this information can be used for medical back ground searches.

My mom worked on the family tree for about 20 years.  After her death, I  packed up her office with the intent of entering her information on a computer program.  When I started reading some of it, I began to take a deep interest  in what I saw there.  I always enjoyed history in school, so some of the  details interested me.  It's come to the point, where Jim and I have planned  vacations around research. It has taken us to places we probably never would  have gone to, otherwise.  I've used mom's information as the starting base and  have been able to expound on it, adding many "twigs, branches and trees" to  her original work.

Again, I'm open for corrections, please provide your sources. I'm very big on proving  the information to be correct.  If you have information that can be used for  updating a line, please e-mail it to me at:  digginroots@yahoo.com  I don't  want to miss anyone!!  I give permission for family members to use the  information contained on this site.  Please include sources when you do.  I DO  NOT give permission for ANYONE (I'm not yelling, just trying to get my point  across.), to post any information taken from this site, on any PUBLIC message  board, family tree site, or genealogy site etc, about any LIVING person/s.  Information on anyone deceased, is a matter of public record.  Please  site sources when using information on someone who has died, when you've taken  the information from my site. Thank you.

Use of this private site is by invitation and if you contact me, I will  provide you with a pass word, that you'll be able to use to check out the site.

So remember, right now, as you're looking through this site, if you don't see  your information (and you know that I have it) please be patient. It probably ended  up in one of the holes and it's taking some time to get the thousands of family  members, (yes-thousands) back onto the tree.

The work I'm doing on this tree for 2009 is dedicated to our grandchildren.  We're  currently at 11 and any new ones the Lord cares to send our way, no matter how He  cares to send them, we're more than happy to welcome them into our family.  He chose  to give us six wonderful children.  Four of them & their spouses have contributed to  the tree, and for that, we are thankful.

Enjoy this music:  Two of my favorite musical compositions:
Le Chancon de Claudine  and 
Classical Gas , both by Mason Williams.

The following poem sums up the work that I'm doing.

                                 Dear Ancestor

                      Your tombstone stands among the rest;
                                neglected and alone
                        The name and date are chiseled out
                             on polished, marbled stone
                           It reaches out to all who care
                             It is too late to mourn
                         You did not know that I'd exist
                             You died and I was born.
                         Yet each of us are cells of you
                           in flesh, in blood, in bone.
                       Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
                              entirely not our own.
                        Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
                             one hundred years ago
                        Spreads out among the ones you left
                           who would have loved you so.
                         I wonder if you lived and loved,
                              I wonder if you knew
                         That someday I would find this spot,                             
                                and come to visit you.
