This database is an ongoing effort to collect and disseminate information on the Cobb, Reyes, Bauer, and Woodson families and their relations. Every effort is made to document and cite the information contained within the database; however, as any experienced genealogist knows, the reliability of the citations can vary greatly and consideration should be given to any source of information you might chose to use. If you have better source material than I have cited and would like to share it, I would be happy to include it in the next updated iteration of the database; please send it to the e-mail link at the bottom of this page.
This website is divided into several sections, shown in the tabs at the top of this page. The person page is the main repository for known facts concerning individuals included in the database; it is accessed primarily through the “Surname Index” or “Search the Database” tabs. The “Notable People” tab shows a growing list of the more remarkable people in the database and their achievements, while the “Calendar” tab provides a calendar view of the genealogical events within a particular month. The “Stories” tab provides histories passed down orally from generation to generation and the “Charts” tab contains descendant and pedigree charts for selected individuals in the database. The “Brickwalls” tab provides a list of the genealogical brick walls and dead ends associated with the database. I would greatly appreciate any documentary evidence you might be able to provide to help break down these brick walls and dead ends, and I highly encourage researchers—especially Cobb family researchers—to read this page before conducting research on the site.
