    Welcome to my genealogy website.  My name is Jane Marie Hopson McClure. 

In memory of my dear friend Wanda Jo Woy Thomas
 30 March 1935-3 April 2009

who contributed so much to the Whiteside and Harritt portions of this website
In memory of my beloved Aunt Gussie Ransdell
 10 November 1920-20 March  2008

   

In memory of my uncle Loran (Pete) Metheny
14 Apr 1913 - 6 Dec 2011
the last of my father's generation

In memory of my cousin Jo Epling Tinney (1936-2013)
 who shared the many Walter photographs in her possession.

In memory of my uncle Harvey Lee Ransdell,
21 Mar 1921-29 Apr 2014,
 the last of my mother's generation.

As my Aunt Gussie said, "Thereís one in every family," and in this family Iím the oneóthe one who has made a life work of researching, collecting, and preserving the family history. Iíve been at it for 40 years, starting when my grandparents and their siblings were alive, so I was able to get much of my information first hand and build on it. Since I discovered the Internet, the quantity of information has grown tremendously.

    I have my entire database (not including living people) posted on Rootsweb, also available on Ancestry.com, and I continue to update it as I find new information. Many families who are related to our families through marriage are included in that database.

    This has always been a labor of love and my only intention has always been to share the information with anyone who is interested now or will be interested in the future even if right now they couldnít care less.  I have also tried to include more than just names and dates whenever possible.

    This is and will continue to be a WORK IN PROGRESS, as long as my eyes, my fingers, my computer, and my mind continue to function. This is a compilation of the research of numerous people, and I have carefully documented all sources. However, I canít vouch for the accuracy of material passed on to me by other researchers. I present it here for what itís worth as a guide to further research.

    I encourage everyone to talk to their older relatives while they have the chance, and to write their own autobiographies and family histories. Future generations will thank you.

    This website would not have been possible without the computer expertise and infinite patience of my husband Mac McClure. Thanks, dear.

P.S.  My other hobby is quilting.  Please check out my new website:  www.janesquiltingscrapbook.com
