Introduction
Welcome to JSB's Genealogy Site.  I am J. Scott Barnes, and this is my modest contribution to the tidal wave of online family histories.  Although my interest in genealogy runs back to my childhood, it is just since the advent of the Web that I have begun to do serious research.  As you will see, my expertise is not in flashy graphics, but rather down-to-earth facts, sources, and details.

So, take a look around.  If you find something of interest, don't hesitate to drop me a line.  Talking with fellow researchers is one of the great joys of being on the Internet.

What's New

29 Jun 2005:
  • Updated database on father's side with a load of new NUSBAUM information, based on a recent visit to Chapel Lutheran Church Cemetery near Libertytown, Maryland.  I included all of the NUSBAUMs buried there, even those for whom I have no ancestral connections...yet; more to come on this point!  There are also new tombstone photos and associated GPS coordinates for several of my direct ancestors.

  • Updated database on father's side with a load of new POOLE data.  Discovered that there were two Hanson POOLEs in Frederick County, Maryland, both with fathers named William and both born in the 1821-1823 time frame (whew!)   I now believe that this Hanson POOLE is my ancestor, while this Hanson POOLE died at Andersonville as mentioned in an earlier update.
  • New pictures from my father's side:
