"Time In A Bottle....." 
'A walk through time'
The Ancestry of Heidi Halfaker Goodsite

This web site is all about my lifelong passion, genealogy.  As a child, I literally drove my parents and grandparents crazy asking questions about their ancestry.  I was surprised how little they could actually recall, however much of what I have included in this web site (especially my most recent ancestors) are from my memory of what they told me.  I have been blessed by connecting with 'cousins' all over the world to help me fill in a lot of the holes I had in certain sections of my ancestry and I thank them all for their help and friendship over the past 7 years. 

My parents and grandparents inspired me to achieve great things in my lifetime.  I hope they would be proud of this web site and of the research I have done.  I can't say that I have found anything so extraordinary about my ancestry, but all these people were unique and all contributed to this world while they were here.  I am proud of them and when I think of how circumstances brought them together so that one day I would exist, it baffles my mind!

I hope that you enjoy reading these pages as much as I have enjoyed researching and writing them.   

I am dedicating this site to my extraordinary parents, Dwight and Dorothea for their loving support during the precious time I had them with me on earth.  I miss them deeply and hope to honor them with this site.  I also want to dedicate this site to my granddaughters, who have given me a reason to look toward the future with hope and joy. 

Hopefully, this web site will live on after me to serve as a connection for my descendants.  Hurrah for the Internet!!
