As the New Years begins – so does the planning of trips this year!1st trip: Going to Michigan – going to where my father was born & raised – was 14 the last time I went up there – 45 now~ I have been asked to speak at the Plainfield Township Historical Commission in May (working on a date – will keep you posted) My main areas of research will be in:
While in Michigan I am also planning on meeting as much as I can of the family – Any one in these areas please contact me to schedule times to visit~ Also I am meeting with a man named Ron Allen that possibly could be of my Allen line – he has agreed to do a DNA for us! Very excited about this! He is also gonna take me around the area to show me the homesteads and such – his father & brother will be joining us~
