Descended from royalty...

When I began this journey I never imagined research of my family history would take me all the way back to the 400s and several royal blood lines.

Kings and Queens were found along with Saints, Czars, Lords and Ladies, Captains, Ministers, Civil War Solldiers and a highly colorful character or two. Thousands  of names long forgotten by history but now rediscovered by their descenants.

My ancestors came from Babylon, Belgium, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Norway, Russia, Scotland, Wales, Switzerland, Sweden, The Netherlands and Turkey. 

One came on the Mayflower, another settled in Jamestown.

I hope you will find something of interest in my story, the Memoir of a homeless boy.

Memoir of a Homeless Boy

The Book

This is a true story...

About me and my family during the Great Depression and the years following. Nowhere to Call Home describes me as a young boy who lived in the south.

At the age of five I hadn't yet realized how Mom and Dad were struggling to keep the family together. 

By the time I was eight I was put into a detention center for boys because I didn't have a home. 

At nine I was placed in an orphanage. I was adopted when I was twelve years old. 

Then, at sixteen I had Nowhere to Call Home.
