This is James T. Channell Family Tree Site. Some of my Information comes from Charles L. Channell . Who did at one time have his own web site many years ago. I started years ago by just putting my last name in search engines to see what would pop up. This is how I found Charles web site on his West Virginia Channell's. So I e-mailed him from a link on his page. The rest was History. He did have information on my Channell's in Southern Ohio. I know I have family who has gotten upset at me for not updateing my web site. Well Web editing is not easy for me. I do have a ton of new information that not on the web site and I don't think Gedcom to Html is not around any more? I'll have to check. Please e-mail me or check my Facebook page which I have linked from my Home. I have some paper work scan to my Photo's on Facebook. I"am looking from more Information on my family in Ohio.
