Our Family History
What started out almost 20 years ago as research into my maternal (Hinson) line and a site for the descendants of my great grandparents, has developed over the years into a massive undertaking. After a few years into my research, I was able to track down a half-sister who gave me lots of information on my birth father's line. (Williams)
Once I put the data online for my family, I began to get queries from others researching Hinson lines and added their lines to the database. From that point, collateral lines were added until today we have over 6,000 families and almost 20,000 individuals in our database. Much of this information was submitted by my close and distant cousins, many of whom have become dear friends via the site.
However, the database has now become a bit unwieldy and with no help or funding, I made some major changes as of the first of 2014. I now only host the ancestral lines for my wife and myself. I also include collateral lines (2nd, 3rd, cousins, in-laws, etc., but I have removed all lines and individuals that are not related to me or my wife in some way. Even then, I was left with a tree that has almost 1500 families and almost 5000 individuals.
I do my best to show source information for all facts but still cannot fully guarantee the accuracy of all information found herein. Please give diligent care to do your personal work before adding any of this info to your tree.
As you browse the site, take whatever information you can use in your research. Living individuals will not show up in search results and can be seen only by those who submit that information.
In 2012 I created a Facebook group for those researching Hinson and related lines. This is our 'social hub' where we discuss anything and everything that is interesting to our members. The group is "Hinson Crossroads" Check us out.
