Background on Family Tree Searcher
The Family Tree Searcher website grew out of efforts to trace my family tree. I found most of the clues to my ancestry by searching online, particularly for my great-grandmother Cora Burns (pictured here). Much to my surprise, the ancestry of Cora Burns can be traced back to the Quaker colonization in 1682.
As I became fairly good at searching the various websites, friends and relatives have asked me to give them suggestions for searching for family trees. Instead of telling them how to search for family trees at various sites, I decided to create this website. I hope this website helps you in your search. To get started, just go to Your Active Family Tree Searches.
