Welcome to Rootlines !
Rootlines, Inc. began in 2012 as a mission to document family history as thoroughly as possible, given the documents available for each individual. Within these pages, you will find birth, marriage, census, death and military records that document the lives of real people, both living and deceased, along with photographs and other important information. The current goal of Rootlines is to provide documented facts for each individual, to link those facts with the proper person and family, and to provide an unbiased source for the truth free of charge to the public. It is also the goal of this organization to eliminate, or to at least reduce, the number of undocumented mistakes found on other websites, and to present information to the public in a responsible manner.
