Update on what I have been working on…


I am in so many directions & projects right now 👀

I am at the moment going through my files and fixing missing photos from all my merges & updates I have done over the years. Not many – a 100 or so needing to be fixed.

I am also rearranging photos of individuals I am working on in their photo albums, trying to make them match on their timelines. Looks better and not so jumbled up in my research books. 😁

I am currently in 3 lines:

Allen’s, Gilberts and Barkhamsted Lighthouse.

Past few months have been cleaning up my files and rearranging them.

I will be coming out with newer versions in a few months 😉

Had a wonderful 2 weeks! We are safely home & much to share!

I’m on a QUEST to follow my TRUE American Roots – the Native American’s~

In an ever widening circle,
Carry far the blood of Chaugham
And his spouse, brave Molly Barber,
Down the years with Adams, Hobson, Jacklin,
Lawrence, Barber, Elwell, Webster, Doty, Berry, Cochran,
And the thousands yet to follow

I’ve been a family genealogist for 18+ years and have traced over 17,000 people for my family tree (Mother & Father’s sides) – I’m the head Genealogist for the Barkhamsted Lighthouse Native American Tribe in Barkhamsted Connecticut and  a true descendant of the Chagam / Barber line~ I’m working closely with several Archaeologist, Historians, Historical Societies, genealogist, family member’s and Author’s on the Chagam’s- I will be blogging about my research and the paths I’ve had to follow – I have traveled extensively to NY, CT, RI and of course Block Island in my quest to trace my Ancestor’s – the Chagam line is rich in Several Wars – starting with the Pequot War and then we have them as slaves – one of the 1st slaves of this American Country – Even have a Pond called after them on Block Island – Chagam Pond also been called Sachem Pond – You have James Chagam who is Chief of the Barkhamsted Lighthouse Village – I can go on and on – have thousands of documents to back up this research – Now I’m ready to tell the wonderful story – Welcome to my blog~ I’m not much of a writer – but great at researching – so excuse any mistakes~ Coni
