The purpose of this website is to display the information I have gathered during the research of my particular Powers family branch.  This site will focus exclusively upon the Powers surname and its variants pertaining to my research.  At the present time, I am at an impasse regarding the parents of Michael Powers who was born in 1727 in Ireland and died in 1807 in New London, Connecticut.  During the course of this project I will add information for the various as yet non-related Powers family lines for which I have gathered information in order to attempt to further my own research. Eventually, most of the Powers family trees have to come together and it is up to us as researchers to share our information in order to find the missing link that may reveal our hidden ancestors.  It is only with the help of fellow researchers like Clarice Tucker that I have been able to accumulate the information I have.  If you have information that could aid me in my research, by all means contact me via e-mail.

Family Trees & Documents

The links below are to trees in my Rootsweb.com file (offsite) that are mainly from the Connecticut and Rhode Island areas.  Some, however, are early historical Powers family trees from England and Ireland.  Many of the people have extensive notes that contain all of my research findings including land transactions, wills, and obituaries.  Feel free to explore them thoroughly and if you have information to add, let me know.  Rootsweb.com specifies 1930 as the year after which people without death dates are considered living.  These people will be marked with Living as a first name in the online file.  If you desire more information about one of these individuals, email me.  Several of the documents below require the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader.
