Welcome to Genealogizer's Blog

I have been genealogizing for more than half a century. My main interest is the Day line and associated Willis, Barnes, Clarke, Pettit, Wilding and McKenzie lines. My Day brick wall is John Day (circa 1809-1842). A cousin started the search for John in 1939 and we are still hunting the rascal. He was born in Virginia, lived several decades in Morgan County, KY, and died in Lancaster, Grant, WI. His wife, Elizabeth McKenzie, descends from Mordoc McKenzie, who immigrated from Glasgow to Virginia.

My goal is to push the Day line back a few more generations, and to collect data on all of his descendants.
