Must Visit Links
Hi, I'm Deb Davis your hostess for this site. The primary focus here is genealogy. You will find some of my research which began in Pulaski County, Illinois and has lead to many other counties in Illinois as well as other states such as Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Tennessee. Information on the surnames that I am researching, my genealogy search, success stories, links to interesting sites and much more.
MY GOAL IS for this site to become a major resource of providing free information of a historical and genealogical nature for Pulaski County Illinois and other areas that I am actively researching.
My hope is that this site will be a great starting site for genealogy research on the internet. My focus is on Illinois African Americans and Pulaski County, Illinois. There are transcriptions of records, biographies, etc. of all nationalities as well as links that will be of value to all genealogist and family history researchers for many states.
The Grand Chain Gang are my ancestors that established their roots in Pulaski county shortly after slavery and their branches. The pages below are about my ancestors who mostly settled in Grand Chain, Illinois in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Grand Chain is located almost as deep south in Illinois as you can go in Pulaski County just 30 miles north of Cairo. Most of the pages have the family tree for each surname, mysteries I am trying to solve and links to documents and researchers pertaining to the surname.
