Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. This site is an attempt to record what I've learned
about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world. One
of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though we live far apart.
On this page I'll provide a little information about who I am and what inspired me to do this research. Most of this
information was probably obtained from talking to living relatives and from researching public records. In the course of doing
this research, I've discovered that I have many more relatives than I ever thought possible!
This is a work in progress,
so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture.
This research started in part
due to my being assigned to the United States Air Force base named for Jarvis Jennes Offutt. After being asked a number of
times if I was related to him, I decided to try and find out. Although at this time I still can't say one way ot the other,
I have learned a great deal about the Offutt Family.
At the bottom of the page is a link to another Web Site that has information about the possible origin of the Offutt
Family. I encourage you to check that site out as well.
