About Vicki

I am the last in my family line to carry the name Ware. It is my middle name. I am interested in learning about my ancestors, because all my mother's family were past about the time I was born. I began researching like most of us start, with a casual curiosity, which has developed into a healthy obsession. I've been learning how and where to research for several years, and have amassed a lot of interesting information. But the most important part of this journey into the past, is the connections I have made with family members many times removed, but who share a common interest as well as common ancestors. I can now say with pride that I am a member of a large and varied family. I hope that this website can help fill in the blanks, put the pieces of the puzzle together, and solve the mysteries of your past. ~ Captain Jack Sparrow
