WELCOME TO OUR FAMILY RESEARCH AND STUDY SITE!
"Unless we recreate the environment of our ancestors, unless we envision their landscape, unless we know what events charted their lives, unless we know THEM, then we will learn little about our heritage." -TALIAFERRO TIMES, Volume I, November 20, 1996, Issue 3
Nothing in genealogy is written in stone. Unless of course it’s a headstone and even those at times have been proven wrong.
This is an ongoing research site for our "Ward" family and its kindred surnames. Some items are still un-sourced and considered at a "best guess" stage. On these pages you will find a great deal of work that has primary, secondary and tertiary sources and you will find information yet to be sourced. We have entered many of the more promising unconfirmed items for research purposes in hopes that you the reader might have or know of information concerning them and be willing to share. We have located quite a few transcriptions. Unless we have listed where the original document is “housed” or we have obtained the document and uploaded it to our media section the transcription itself is to be used for furthering research, not as a confirmed source, the original document should be found and the transcription proofed. All unconfirmed items are being researched, studied and evaluated; it is an ongoing effort, with accuracy the goal.
We would be glad to hear and answer all questions, comments, corrections and new information. Check back often for changes and additions. -Jane, 21 May 2008

My greatest thanks to the following groups of people without whom I might never have been able to get as far as I have in this endeavor.
To computer geeks everywhere who imagined and devised the internet and the tools for me to be among the first generation with the ability to “virtually travel” to far away places to find and collect information I would otherwise have not had the means to do
To William E. Ward, my "Uncle Bill", who through his manuscript, "Family History of William E. Ward", opened my eyes to just how large and extraordinary my family was and is. For trusting and encouraging me to continue with the research.
To my grandmother, Mary G. Ward, who gave me a lifetime of family stories to share with my children.
To my husband and children, who with great love have patiently listened to and read all of my “exciting finds” and tolerated my countless hours “searching and typing” on the computer.
To all in our family who have given us the opportunity to walk with them through their memories. These “memory walks” were essential to discovering new paths to familial research.
To our ancestors who in their daily living left the threads that our family historians, contributors, and story tellers have collected and woven into this Kindred Tapestry.
LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!
