We are two of the grandchildren of Carrie and Royal McIvor, the couple on the left side of the above photo. This site is our attempt to record what we know of our ancestors so that our descendants will have some knowledge of the rich and varied heritage that produced both us and them.
Besides the McIvor/McIver Family of Bedford and Amherst Counties in Virginia, you will (eventually) find information on the Steen Family also from Amherst County, the Graham and Howell Families from Cecil County, Maryland, the Schnurr and Williams families from Wisconsin, and other related families. Please check back from time to time as we work to publish the information, photos, documents and stories that we have. You may want to “Follow Blog Via Email” to get updates when new posts are uploaded.
If you are related or think you may be related to one of the branches of this far spreading family tree, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you and hope we can share and exchange information about our ancestors.
We have researched everything we post here and believe it to be accurate. However, undoubtedly there will be some mistakes. We welcome any corrections along with the documentation to support them.

Like branches on a tree, our lives may grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one.
All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. –Anonymous
