As one of the story tellers of the tribe, I have been researching my family tree since 1979. I have researched all lines: siblings, my hus­band’s direct line (Ups­dell), and my direct line (Ackerman). My family tree now has over 17,000 people, some born nearly 420 years ago. To browse my family tree, click Family Tree in the top menu bar.
