Reflections From My Family Tree


Hello fellow researchers.
I am Carolyn Johnson Burns of Dayton, Ohio.

They say genealogy is a disease. The "bug" bit me in late 1995, midway between celebrating my parent's 50th wedding anniversary and my father's 80th birthday. I suppose it was either a sense of my own mortality or that of the Johnson name that made me want to know about those who came before me. In any event, I began a process that will continue the rest of my life.

In a tribute to my ancestors' long journeys and many hardships, I am attempting to preserve their history. This web page follows their trails, and these are their stories.
