Beloved Family,

We have revised our website to enable it to become a storehouse of knowledge on the history of the Edward/James family. We look forward to any contributions you would like to make i.e. stories and/or photos.

This site also celebrates our past family reunions and will provide information for any future family reunions. Our family is growing and coming together fairly rapidly through the wonders of DNA testing, that in essence has become a tremendous gift that keeps on giving.  

Please share this website with other kinfolk so we may connect to learn more about our history,  build foundations for the future Edward/James generations and most importantly, to simply meet each other and be together. 


Sincerely,

Sibongile Bradley West
Great-Granddaughter of Adeline James LaChaise and Felician LaChaise
Great-Granddaughter of Lazare James and Laura Green James
Granddaughter of Paul James and Felica LaChaise
Daughter of Adlene James Bradley and Manuel H. Bradley
This website is dedicated to my mother.
