My Genealogy Quest
Jackson and Ketchum Family History
My love and passion for history is what peaked my interest in Genealogy. I originally started researching my family roots around 1999-2000. I am captivated by the thought of knowing my family’s history and I also hope to uncover my ancestors untold stories and understand their lives. I have dabbled in and out of genealogy over the years, but have recently become rejuvenated with researching my family ancestry once again, so much that I decided to start a website My Genealogy Quest for Jackson-Ketchum family history to share my experiences along the way in hopes of connecting with other researchers and possibly many new cousins.
I am currently researching my paternal Missouri ancestors who were predominately located in Cooper, Morgan and Moniteau Counties. I am also researching my maternal side who is based mainly in the Oklahoma area. As for my husband’s family lines, they are mainly based in Texas. Please check the Family Lines link for further information as I will be continually updating this information.
My goal of this site is to share data that is helpful to all genealogical researchers, but also to create a place for African American data. How I am going to do that has not been defined yet, but is something that I hope to develop through the course of my journey. Thank you for sharing this journey with me. Enjoy my sight and please comment and let me know what I can do to improve the site and also what information you would like to see shared.
