I just became a member, so let me introduce myself. I was born in Rutland, went to UVM and have lived in Massachusetts since graduation. I've been doing genealogy on and off since the early 70s. I've had more time to devote to my family tree in the past couple of years and am currently working on more family and individual details, organizing and expanding my sources and filling in some holes. I've pushed most of my lineage back to original European settlers so I have lot to work on! The major branches of my family are:
Densmore: mostly Scottish and English, came to Vermont (Guilford, Georgia) from MA around 1780
Douglass: came from Canada about 1810 and are a dead end so far. The Douglass' had French Canadian wives and I am researching Larose and Tetrau/Tetrault as a result
Spaulding/Driscoll: English and Irish, also came from MA in the late 1700s
Anoe/Hainault: my maternal grandfather's people are 99.9% French Canadian and include Fortier, Larocque, Leclere among others
I am looking forward to continuing my research with VTFGCS and sharing information from my research as well. For completeness, I should mention that I am also a member of NEHGS and have access to their facility.
