Wickliffe descedants I NEED YOUR HELP

The other day, I noticed that my blog had 177 views in one day!  

I was stunned. (Thanks geneamusings for the mention.)    
I never thought that anyone would ever look at this little blog that I created to tell my family's story & in one day over a 150 people did.  

I just wanted my mom to read it.

That got me to thinking, I wonder if I'm hitting my target audience. 

 The Wickliffe family.


I continue to write this blog for one main reason...these 2.  I saw this picture years ago & I wondered what they were like or what they lived through.  I thought that one day, my 3 children may ask the same question.

It's not just my great grand parents story that I want to tell, but I also wanted to tell the story of their families and the families that married into ours.  In the end, I am not just part Wickliffe, but many other parts as well.

I guess that's where I need help.  I've tried to get organized and research our tree the right way, but I need to know if I'm on track or way off.

My current tree has 3240 people, 870 photos, 69 stories and 7424 historical records.

I know what I have, now let's talk about what I need.

I've recently started a to-do list.  I'm a techy so I started it on this cool site called Trello.com
Here's a link to what I've created so far.

It's not much, but it's a start.

What I need to find now is more pictures.  
I don't want our family photos to end up in someones garbage can because another family member didn't know that they existed.  I also don't want the stories that my mother, aunts, uncles and cousins were told as children to not be told to my children.


Help me to write the story of our family.  I want our children's children to be able to Google the name of one of their ancestors and maybe get a glimpse of what they may have been.
Contact me.  Let me be the first of our family to share what has been shared with me.

Let's keep telling our story.
