G'Day and Welcome!
This site represents the personal ancestry of Jim and
Lois Carney, who were born in California and Michigan, USA. Since then,
we have traveled the globe from Europe to the Middle East, from Africa
to India, from Asia to Australia and South America and of course, all
over the USA and Mexico. We have continued the desire to discover new
lands and to head "west", returning to live again in Australia after a
short absence and now live and work on our orchard property in Childers
Queensland. The ancestry of Jim is documented back through 1,000's of
years and if our ancestry paths and yours should cross, please let me
know so we can exchange information.
My research work represents thousands of hours of
personal research and a compilation of evidence uncovered which point
to the most likely consensus of opinion and facts which strongly
indicate the family genealogy presented. Our pasts contain the good,
the bad and the unusual. From common, hardworking and family orientated
individuals of little or great renown and heroic in many ways - to evil
and mischievous connivers who killed parents, brothers, sisters and any
one else in their way - to jockey for Royal position, or passion, or
wealth. With over 30,000 individuals and 10,000 families represented
here, there are many, many stories to tell and lessons to be learned,
both historically and personally. I wish to acknowledge a lot of other
people, too numerous to mention who have also put some very serious
work into painstakingly researching and documenting the information
contained herein and I wish to thank all of them, living and past for
the hard work and dedication they have put into making this possible.
As always, our ancestry is a living and changing book, and I will
continue to add chapters and names as information becomes available.
