Ancestry Project

Welcome to my Ancestry Project. My name is Jerry Milo Johnson. This website is dedicated to sharing research into my family history.

If you would, please sign my guestbook, to give me an idea of who is visiting, and from where, I would be grateful.

My family mostly originated in Ireland, Scotland and England, with a some German and “other” thrown in. They include the surnames of Johnson, Masters, Teeple, White, Finley, Graham, Hastings, Panknin, Armstrong and Pike.

There are currently over 23000 individuals, 8500 familes and over 2200 photos. But this is just a start.

If you have any family photos, copies of documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, death certificates, family stories, family bibles, journals, letters, etc. please send copies to me as I would like to preserve any and all information for future generations of our family. I will pay for all copying, shipping, and photo restoration work needed. If you would like copies of any of my information, just let me know.

PLEASE NOTE: You will need to be a registered user and logged in before being able to view information and pictures of ‘living individuals’ on this site. Registering for an account is as simple as filling out the registration form. “Living” individuals include people I do not have any date information on, regardless of how far in the past they lived.

    Please contact me via email regarding Cora Elizabeth Miller in your genealogy. She was my great great grandmother and I’m researching her – please let me know where you got the maiden name Wilson. I have a different maiden name for her. It’s possible she was brought up by a step mother who remarried. Thanks for helping me with this mystery!

  18. Karen Bernstein says:

    Hi, Jerry. Richard Stout was my 8th great-grandfather also, through Jonathan, the third son of RIchard and Penelope. Which if their children were you descended from? I’ve found conflicting dates of death for Penelope – 1712 and 1732. How did you verify the year of her death? THe most convincing arguments seem to favor the 1712 date.

  19. Sheila LeClair says:

    Jerry: I am a 3rd great granddaughter of George Johnson and Margaret McCullogh F1121. I have the full family info through their son John b. 1809 d. 1903. Your information was extremely helpful since I live in Canada and am finding it extremely difficult to get access to whatever records exist in Northern Ireland.

    Hi there,

    I am wondering if this site is still active. I am trying to register and log in, but am having no luck.

    • Jerry Milo Johnson says:


      Yes, the site is still active. It is just the administrator who has been slacking. He will get more active now that the weather has turned.
