--Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (1553-1592)


I am a retired public school teacher, living in a small isolated desert town in the southeastern California. I have been researching the Roll and related families since before 1995, and have portions of my genealogy on the internet in various locations.

My ancestors in the historic past are mostly from Ireland, Scotland, England, the Netherlands, Germany, and France. My living relatives hail from four of the seven continents.

Some of my research appears online:
