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

Descendants of John Conard

I just came across a book entitled The Descendants of John Conard of Loudoun County, Virginia by Amy Metcalf Bowen. I will be busy for some time checking this one out.
I found it with HeritageQuest Online. This is a tremendous resource for anyone interested in history or genealogy. You access their databases using your library card ID code. Your library must be a member for you to utilize this service.
