I have been doing genealogy research on my family and extended family lives since the 1970's. When I became disabled in Oct 2000 I began doing genealogy research 4-18 hours a day. I have completed three family history books for indirect family members, and one family history book for a friend. I have done an 2500 page ebook library edition of my family history and I am currently editing my full version 8000+ page family history book. I have successfully proven lines for membership in the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), National Society Sons of the American Revolution (SAR), United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) and United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada (UELAC) to name a few. I have been presented with numerous awards for my work in the genealogy field.

The Act specifically allowed single men, widows, male or female heads of households, and aliens who intended to become naturalized, if 21 years old or older, and who lived on the land for at least 14 months, to purchase 160 acres of land for the price of only $1.25 per acre.
