This website is the story of my family, and it is the story of many families. It is also the story of our country, at least it is a part of that story.
You can start anywhere you like- with a surname, a place, or an historical event. Or, you can start right here. I am going to start with my grandparents. If you want to find out more about them, click on their names. From there, you will find links to more information about them and about their ancestors.
Click here if you would like to view my family tree in ancestry.com. You might need an ancestry.com membership to view it. I have a lot of information there, some is verified and some is conjecture.
My name is Donna Maureen Meek Pike and I was born in St. Petersburg, Pinellas, Florida in 1956. I have made myself the reference point for this site to make it as simple as possible to explain and understand the complicated family relationships. If you are my relative, then you can figure out (easily, I hope) your relationship to any of my ancestors. I have also done some research on some in-law families who are not my ancestors but are the ancestors of some of my relatives. I plan to add links to their information in the future. Some of these in-law families are Pike, Powell, and Ledbetter.
This entire site is “under construction.” I will be continuously adding pages, and adding information to established pages. If you are interested in a particular page, be sure to check back periodically.
I hope that you enjoy this site as much as I enjoy putting it together. dmp
