The Lives of Our Ancestors

This section is devoted to describing what life was like for our ancestors who lived previous to the year 1900.

You will find information here about day to day life as well as the common customs of the people who make up the family names on our genealogy charts. 

In studying our family tree, we often find the challenges faced by our ancestors are entirely different than we face today.  Whether your interest is in genealogy or history, you will find these articles to be of interest.
