About this Blog


I have spent many years researching the Eggleston family, from our earliest roots in America to more recent generations. The result was a lengthy book published in 2010. Since then, as anticipated, new discoveries have been made and insights gained through the increase in information available, especially online. Rather than print a revised book or even an addendum, I will post corrections, additional information, and new discoveries here on this site. On this site I will be able to post copies of documents and other source information with additional details.

I will also share what I have learned from my journey of discovery – experiences and lessons – as I have searched, studied and pondered about ancestors, considering why they did what they did within the perspective of their time and place and how their lives have influenced the family and myself.

You will not find a genealogy database here, but rather photos, documents and writings about my family. I intend to include documents, photographs and stories contributed by other family members. Hopefully, it will become an archive of historical information for my family to come to know and remember our ancestors.
