Several years ago I had a friend who would brag about her family history. I countered by bragging about my family history. After a few years of this, I thought I would show her that my family history was the best. I brought out my family history and when I showed it to her she said, “That’s my family history too!”

Our great-grandfathers were brothers yet we had no idea we were cousins!

I saw this same scenario played out by two elderly neighbors in a retirement apartment complex I managed. The two women had been neighbors for years yet they had no idea they were cousins. When they discovered their common ancestors, a rich rewarding family relationship developed. We desire the same.

The purpose of this blog is to:

  • Find the down line for the Castleton family
  • Get a comprehensive history of our ancestors
  • Obtain photos and documents
  • Publish a Castleton Family History book and genealogy 
  • Invite a friendly family correspondence
