Starting Sept. 5, 2014, Genealogy.com will be making a big change. GenForum
message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
My ancestors Betsy Ann Springs and William Doughty were from Tn, Wilson County and settled in Southern Illinois, Williamson County. My family consists of the dark folks and the light folks, which is how they have been called in our families for the past 7 generations. In the small town where many of my family lived for several generations, the local's always named us "mixed", which always made us laugh. All I know is there are two shades in my family, dark eyes, dark skin, super straight black hair, or dark eyes, light skin, super straight brown/blonde hair.
