This First Families section is for ancestors that lived in the tri-county area prior to 1900. If you have ancestors that you would like to have posted, all you have to do is send us the information. You can send it to us in a .rtf, .txt, .doc, or .html format. (Usually Family Tree Maker and other similar programs use .rtf files)
You MUST let us know that you are sending a file prior to sending it. We do not open attachments from unknown sources.
If you have a genealogy web site of your tri-county ancestors, let us know and we will add a link on our "Personal Sites" page so that others may visit.
If you see a picture that is very small, it is a "thumbnail" picture. Click on the picture for a larger view.
Use these family pages as a springboard for your research. We have made no attempts to verify the accuracy of the information submitted. If you find what you believe to be errors, please contact the submitter.
Please do NOT submit any information on living people. We do not post that information. It is too dangerous to post names of living people, even if the information listed says "Private". We use 1920 as the cut-off year for births.
If you have questions or problems with this site, email the TCGS Coordinator, Ms. Carrie Davison, or the Webmaster, Ms. Debra Hosey.
Please do not ask for specific research on your family here. Use the Research Help page instead.
