Bacon/Hunt/Hewitt/and Post from England- 1660-1900's.
That's my maternal side. Parmelee's from England to CT, my paternal side. Then there's my husband's family, the Vreelands from the Netherlands. That line was fun to try to trace.
I got started researching my family history ......
I got started this genealogy thing this Spring. The Bacon/Hunt/Hewitt/and Post was begun by my grandfather. The line was done in the 40' & 50's. It was bare bones work, so I decided to flesh it out & add to it. Vreelands were just basic also. It's been fun!

I'm fortunate enough to have a Genealogy Center right here in Jonesville and I introduced myself. They were very helpful to me, and patient. We managed to find a couple of facts that fit and I'm excited to see if I find information I need on this 1st microfilm I've ordered from Church records from Navenby, England. Wouldn't that be a hoot? Beginning the new yr., I'll put out some money for searching. It ought to be an interesting year.
