The Genealogy of Dennis Bowen Caskey
and Michelle Lynn Smith

We have been working on tracing our families for about eleven years, now, and we've had quite a bit of success with the project.  At first we thought we'd try keeping the project small by trying to find the initial person who immigrated to this country in each family line.  We didn't realize what a monumental task that would actually be.  We currently have over 10,000 people in our database and we still haven't been able to trace all of our family lines out of the country.

We'd like to dedicate this project to our two sons, Benjamin and Samuel.  Boys, we hope that someday you'll also take an interest in your family history and will carry on where your father and mother left off.
