About this Site

This website and blog are designed to share the genealogical research and family history that I have collected over the years. It includes information, images and photographs from all four major branches of my family: Buchanan, Joyce, Merchant and Stokes.

Each of the four family image galleries is password protected. To obtain a password for a particular gallery, please send a request through our “Contact Us” form, or email me directly.

Clearly, this is a work in progress. I hope you enjoy it, learn something here about our cousins, and will share with us missing pieces, new additions, corrections and clarifications that will extend and enhance the wonderful story of our extended family.
