How said, you know, it is almost puzzling to me how some people couldn't care less about their lineage, but it fascinates me to no end. When I found and traced my direct lines to 1667 for Cullom, I nearly fainted, it was so interesting, I found this order that started off in 1667 and just kept reading one families children and so on and so on, and then all of the sudden 10 or so generations later, there was my great grand father and it was almost like a door opened in my mind that I didn't know was there. Until I looked into this, I had literally a 100% feeling that I would never have found any information on Cullom, I didn't even know my grandmother's father's name much less 10 or so generations down the line. Out of the 4 last names of my grandparents, I have traced 2 back to 1600, and 1667. Some of my siblings act like they are interested, but not even a tenth as I am. I guess you said that you thought I had tried to contact either your late husband or his brother but that wasn't me. I am 30 and just stumbled upon this last August when a lady that I worked w/ told me about all of this and I told her that there was no way in the world that I'd ever be able to trace my family because of the odd surnames that I have in my history, and she told me that I'd be surprise and obviously, the rest is Genealogy history. Thank you for taking the time to respond to me, without people like you, this information would be lost forever. When I get this book from my grandmother, I'll see how hard it will be to scan it, I work for Xerox so I can do things like this. If you have anything on hard drive, you are more than welcome to send it to me. My email is: CULLOM@MSN.COM
