The Sellers Family


Inspired by newly-discoverd cousins (thank you David!), information on my Sellers line is now being worked on, and shared. 

With my Grandfather having 12 siblings, I expect there are a lot of cousins out there who could help :)  Please feel free to share, correct, and provide your own information to what is shared here.

 I have Family Tree Maker files if anyone would like electronic copies or PDFs of reports, just drop me a note:
