Get ready for Kevin Costner's Hatfields & McCoys May 28th



I believe the song in the trailer is The Silent Comedy called "Bartholomew".

If you are interested in the genealogy of the Hatfields and McCoys or of the people in that region you should join the Appalachian Heritage Group.

From the group's description: "Our family surnames are,(but not limited to):

Article: Not Your Grandmother's Genealogy Hobby

I was featured in an article about genealogy at the Wall Street Journal! I have been too busy to link to it. The author, ALINA DIZIK, included information about the Longhunters in my family. It's an interesting article, please stop by and read it and tell me what you think. Did she leave out any resources you use daily?
