This blog is a compilation of my research into my Courtney and lane heritage. Each ancestor has a unique story and I’ve enjoyed getting to know them through what seems endless research. Some moments left me staring at the computer screen either in shock or in sadness. Good or bad, knowing the truth of where you’ve come from is a valuable gift to receive. I want to share what I’ve learned with you. I hope you will enjoy getting to know them too.
