|Bio and Links|
I have been researching my family lines since 1995. My first mentor, and someone to whom I am much indebted, was the late Col. Ed Schott. Ed, a volunteer at the National Archives in Washington DC, was a certified professional genealogist. He took a keen interest in helping me develop my research skills. He introduced me to LCol. Patrick G Wardell, author of several Virginia genealogy research books. In the days before internet genealogy, both Ed and Pat provided much guidance and assistance in helping me find and document many of my ancestral lines. Both stressed that just because some hereditary society had approved a family tree it didn't mean that tree accurately reflected an accounting of that family line. From 1995-1998 I consulted Loyd Bockstruck, the noted genealogist from Dallas, Texas, about newly found documents while researching the Hastings aka Hasten families from Southside, Virginia.|
Except for two lines that came to America via the Port of New Orleans in the 1850's, all my ancestral lines were in America by early 1700's. Many were in Virginia several years before the Pilgrims' landing on a rock at Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Thank you for the very interesting story of your Colonial ancestors. Fascinating! Yes, more and more people are getting the DNA tests done. I imagine many more people will find out that their trees are not what they thought! :)
