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 North America. We have continued the desire to discover new lands and we have headed "west", and are living in Minyama, Queensland, Australia after migrating here in 1984.  We still travel quite a bit with dual citizenship (US/AUS) and run several businesses and an avocado orchard.

Jim's ancestry 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. Like many who research genealogy, Lois' ancestry is limited to a shorter time frame.

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.
