The notes below were received from Janie Kimble and are specific to the Jackson file.  As a reminder, this website is a supplement to the parent site, "Our Jackson Clan"  http://www.jacksonfamilygenealogy.com/

5 June 2018

For many years, Janie Jackson Kimble and I have enjoyed the thrill of the hunt while researching our family's heritage.  Like family researchers such as Oscar Burton Robbins, Virgil Allen and many more before us, we have made discoveries, confirmations and corrected many records.  Our journey has allowed us to connect with many researchers and members of our family to keep our heritage alive.  Fifteen years ago, we decided to start bringing our family history to the masses via the world wide web.  Janie did a marvelous job as the chief webmaster at http://www.jacksonfamilygenealogy.com/ and the time has come to evolve that page and change it's focus.  I am including Janie's message below that speaks of our official transition.  I will take over as the caretaker of the Jackson main database and offer it here on my site in it's entirity.  I look forward to continuing our search together.  Our continued thanks go out to all that have collaborated and donated records to our family's history.  As a History teacher, let me remind you of a familiar quote, "Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Dear Jackson cousins and researchers,

Major changes to the Jackson website! The transfer of my Jackson database and now the transition of all the related pages pertaining to Jacksons descended from Robert of Hempstead has been completed.  Now Jerry's https://www.quiltedfamilytrees.com has all of the Hempstead related info.  Jerry also has completed a new template for his site with new features so all of this should make for a better research and communication experience.  I hope all of you will sign into his site and explore.  

What will I be doing??  I will remain a Jackson researcher and will still have a Jackson site. But now the site will make available DNA analysis of the Hempstead Group (FTDNA) enabled and/or written by Jack McAnally, PLUS a LOT of Jackson research that I've done on OTHER lines. For some time I have wanted to make available the work I've done on these other lines.  I have posted some to WeRelate, some to rootsweb (before it went down) and some to ancestry. 

I started to put the whole 66 person list on the Home Page (right side), then realized most of the lines were already listed on WeRelate, so why not save myself some work and just link to that page at WR.   I know it will be better if/when I list them all on the Home Page instead of expecting viewers to link to somewhere else.  Perhaps these other lines will eventually have DNA designation but that remains a goal not yet accomplished.  Maybe in the future or maybe when someone younger takes an interest.  

I continue to enjoy this never-ending puzzle called genealogy and do appreciate all the cousins and researchers I've met along the way.  So keep up the emails and I'll keep up the research.  

I will suggest also that y'all sign onto Jerry's FaceBook 'Hempstead Group' which will be available both for announcements and questions back and forth.  Let's make this a very active group with lots of members. https://www.facebook.com/groups/468602469959095/
