Welcome to our website! My name is Marty Grant. I created this website to share my genealogical research with family and fellow researchers. I have been researching my ancestry since 1980, and my wife Karla's since 1987.
My father's ancestry is primarily from North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia and Tennessee, with some ancestry in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey (these last three places I have done very little research in). His ancestors came to America primarily from Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Germany and Portugal.
My mother's ancestry is primarily from Marion County, South Carolina as well as neighboring Horry County, South Carolina. She also has ancestors from Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, Lenoir, Onslow and Wayne Counties, North Carolina. Her ancestors appear to have mainly originated in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
My ancestors were mostly Europeans. I have a few from Africa, and I have some alleged Native American ancestry (Cherokee), but I have yet to prove that.
Karla's father's ancestors were primarily from Pennsylvania, Virginia, Illinois, Colorado, Washington, Ohio, Tennessee and Missouri, and generally of Anglo and Germanic origin.
Karla's mother's ancestors were primarily from Iowa, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and Washington. They are generally of Norwegian and Germanic origin.
I haven't done as much research on Karla's family as on my own. Others have researched many of her lines fairly well, and I see no need to duplicate their work at this time.
