Blog type: Individual family history, Midwest genealogy

MidwestAncesTree Half Irish Celtic lass from the Midwestern United States (the other half being German and English/Canadian); longing for connections to those who preceded me and wanting to honor the one who came from me. Though consumed with ancestry hunting I can occasionally be found fly fishing the heavenly waters of Colorado and Wyoming. Since this is about my Midwest Roots, you might wonder where my family trees are. They are currently private trees thru ancestry.com because of the great amount of proprietary sources and personal pictures, but if you are tracking any of these family names, let me know – would be happy to share what I can! AWALT, BRADY, CLANCY, HANLON, HICKMAN, HOLLAND, FINNEGAN, IVERSON, MARDIS, MILBURN, MORLAN, O’CONNELL, OCKERMAN, SEAMAN, STILL, WEBB
