This site will be down for awhile.
The links below will not work temporary while I try to rebuild.
Hopefully, not long after the New Year, it will be back up and then updated more often.
Meanwhile, please feel free to get in contact with me.
ALSO!!! I had received emails in the last 6 months or so, and you may be still awaiting a response. Due to a problem with my email client, I have lost many, many emails that I saved with the good intention of getting back to.
If this is you, PLEASE, email me again!

Researched and Compiled by: Alicia Jensen - with about a million people to Thank!
Some of these people include:
My late grandmother, Thelma
Bennett, who had compiled a small Genealogy of her own;
my dad, the late Marvin Bennett; and his sister, my aunt, Joan Gilchrist - both of whom I'd 'bugged' with questions;
Lucille Mader; Clifford Newsham; Schelly Talalay Dardashti;
for ordering BMD certificate after certificate and for having what
turns out to be a Great Investigative Brain!
Dawn Simnick, Marion McGinn, and Shirley Widra
for the wonderful bouncing of ideas, tidbits of Family Lore, photos, and just for acting like Family!
My Uncle Danny and Auntie Ilene, for the relaying of many family stories - both the good and the bad.
And to EVERYONE not
mentioned who has EVER helped and shown an interest...
Additionally, I need to send Special THANKS
out to my SISTERS
- Sacha, Reesa and Trish -
all who have been very supportive and helpful with feed back, suggestions and ideas and just plain enthusiasm!
Dedicated with Special Rememberances to:
my dad, Marvin (MADER) BENNETT
- without whom I would have never found the Maders, and who I still have a million questions for -
We All Miss you, DAD!;
and his mother, my grandmother, Thelma (POTTER) BENNET ;
mother, Maureen (Wohl) Bennett;
and both of her parents, "Papa" Louis Wohl and "Nanny"Ann Wohl
- who finally started talking about her family and got me started 'in the Old Country';
~as long as their names are still spoken...they will live forever~
built for the White Star Line in 1902 by Harland & Wolff, Belfast.
This ship first brought my mother's grandfather,
Jacob TALALAY / Jack TAYLOR to the United States in 1914.
Ironically, this same ship also carried my father's mother to visit family in England in 1924.
