I am Michelle
Lynnett Welch Ellis, born in Beaumont, Texas on October 28, 1970
and raised in Monroe, Louisiana. I am the daughter of Travis Lloyd
Welch, Sr. and Virginia Lynn McCoy Welch of Winnsboro, Louisiana
and Knoxville, Tennessee, respectively.
ended up in Jones County, Mississippi and Franklin Parish, Louisiana,
after migrating into Charleston, South Carolina
in the late 1600's/early 1700's from Scotland. But before that,
we came from a very long line of European royalty, and I am a direct
descendant of Charlemagne, William the Conqueror, lines of Aetheling,
Plantagenet, Carolingian, et al.
married other royals for the sake of treaties, you can pretty much
throw a stick in Europe and hit a statue of one of my grandparents.
I can get completely
lost on ancestry.com for weeks at a time. My plan is to add that
research to this website in the future, but all my research lives
there at the moment.
