Welcome

These pages are being used to share the results of my family history research and all kinds of historic and current family photos. My genealogy research blog is Relay – A Family History Blog.  I’d love to hear from you.  Opinions, ideas and research helps are always welcome.  You can reach me at Heather@mcwieser.info.  I don’t post GEDCOMs, since in the past I’ve had tentative relationships turned into sure and certain things when shared with other researchers via GEDCOM.

I am Heather McLeland-Wieser, a mom, wife, daughter, sister, librarian.  I’ve been actively doing my own genealogical research for about 20 years. This site gives me a chance to share my work on the many surnames I’ve worked on with fellow researchers. I publish articles on this site relating to the various surnames I’m most deeply involved in researching, particularly the McLeland, Wieser, Savage, Scheck, and Whitman families. My genealogy research blog is Relay – A Family History Blog. There I post research in progress and ideas about history, family and life in general.  You are welcome to comment!
