I can trace my mothers ancestors clear back to relatives of Meriwether Lewis and beyond...

Pa's is a little tougher...He was born Robert Alma Welch on 9 Sept. 1913 in Milledgeville Georgia to Luther Herman Welch & Lula Henrietta Parker...
My fathers dad was Charles Avery Welch 7 Nov 1889 to 10 Feb 1925 (a woodcutter) and his mother Mildred Rebecca Thomas (no dates)

That's pretty much where it ends on my dads side....

Any help beyond would be greatly appreciated!

Look for wedding records, land deeds, travel manifests/Ellis Island records/ Railroad records, Gold stake claims, between dates 1860 -1900 for both Charles and Mildred (your great grand parents). Good luck :)

Thanks SUJ...I'll do that...

You know whats sad?...
I had many opportunities to ask my 'ol man who I love to this day.... what was what and who was who, but I never did...Pa died in 89 without me so much as asking him anything about his family...yes I knew a couple of my aunts...
I knew even less about his brothers (other than they all served in WW2)...Something none of them talked about including my 'ol man....but when I came of age I could have at least tried to get a little history out of em...
But I didn't...I respected what they went though and wasn't going to push....
