Hello and welcome to Your Roots are Showing. This genealogy site documents the families of Carole (Hallett) and Harold Craswell.

This started out with Carole suggesting it was time to update the "Hallett" book she did for the family a number of years ago. Then we started talking about how expensive it was to print all that material. Now here we are.

For the first little while we are concentrating on getting the site to look and feel like we want it to, so there is a lot missing. Once that is more or less complete we will turn our attention to adding some of the tons of information we have on both families.

We strive for accuracy as much as possible but this is a hobby and we may not always get things right. If you see anything which is amiss please feel free to contact us to contribute what you can. Click on the photos to see more details.
