    A cordial hello to All, I am Timothy Dunford, and I reside in SE Louisiana, just close enough to New Orleans to go out for dinner. This area of the US isn't related to my roots, which, from my research turns out to be Colonial Virginia. The earliest ancestor that I've found down, 9 generations...
