The Worland Family in America and Beyond
I began my life in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, on an island filled with forests and wild rhododendrons. I was separated from my Worland family there at an early age. Recently, I was reunited with my family and learned of my heritage. And so, this journey to know my ancestors began. The Worlands, Gideons, Newtons, Conards... they were the colonists, the settlers, the pioneers. They fought in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War. This is their story, and the story of a nation. -Deci Worland MacKinnon

Something I Would Like to Read
Sister Mary Clara was the daughter of my great great great grandfather, Thomas Worland. She wrote the vital record dates of her family in a book called "Life of the Saints". It was found at the Convent of Oldenburg in Kentucky were she lived her life as a nun.
