September 5th, 2008

I must really apologize.  I feel terrible that I have not been keeping this site up to date.  I have high hopes that I can do a little more in the coming months.  I've bought a program to put the entire family tree on-line, which we can all collaboratively work together to update.  Now, I just have to get the tree into a good-enough shape, delete duplicate entries, etc. 

For now, enjoy a few shots I took at a mini-reunion this September.  Any other Godseys who want me to host their pictures, please let me know. We'll arrange how to get the images and I will be happy to put them up on the site for all to enjoy!

January 13th, 2006

The Godsey Descendant Tree and Ancestors of Keith Foster Godsey pages have been revised quite a bit.  I have been going through the family tree and trying to confirm information.  So the tree is smaller than it used to be, but more accurate (or at least, better sourced)

January 4th, 2006

We have a new Godsey Family History page, which contains a history of the Godseys in the US compiled and written by A. R. Godsey and Mary Jane Erwin.

December 23rd, 2005 

Just in time for Christmas, we have a new Origin of Godsey Name page!  We also reorganized and added more information to the Genealogy page.

October 31st, 2005

Happy Halloween!!!  With the best of intentions, I haven't updated this site in awhile.  To make up for it, there is a new Descendant Tree page, which lists all of our family tree from the possible ancestor.

December 22nd, 2004 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!  I know this site has not changed in awhile (this should change in 2005).  I just wanted to wish everyone Happy Holidays!

April 20th, 2004 

Mailing List Correction - Sorry, but I am learning these things.  The Mailing list is not completely private.  Subscribers to the list can see your email address when you post.  It shouldn't be a big deal but I just wanted to let you know.

Forums! - We now have bulletin boards!  You can now post and see messages using our Forums page.

 April 13th, 2004  We have a mailing list now!  Send email to the whole family (or at least everyone on the list)!  It also should not be spammed much because people must subscribe to it.  Please join up and send a hello!  To subscribe, send an email to, you will then receive an email asking you to confirm subscription.  After that, you can send an email to everyone on the list by sending email to:

March 8th, 2004  Again, we apologize for web site problems.  Switching hosts took longer than we thought.  If there are any problems, please let me know.

Also, I've converted over the old guestbook to the new guestbook.  It looks much nicer now.

March 1st, 2004  We apologize for our server being down a couple days.  We were switching web hosts.

January 19th, 2004  Joyce Godsey, Daughter of Richard "Dick" Godsey, has provided even more pictures.  Her gallery has grown to 95 new pictures!  You can find them in our Photo Album

January 16th, 2004  Joyce Godsey, Daughter of Richard "Dick" Godsey, has provided some terrific new pictures.  You can find them in our Photo Album

January 16th, 2004  Redesigned the web site.  Created a new Events & Tributes page where I can organize pictures & information from specific events like William John O'Brien Tribute and weddings, etc.

March 21st, 2003  Updated William John O'Brien Tribute page and moved Family Tree out of protected directory (that was a mistake)

February 7th, 2003  Rest in Peace... William John O'Brien Tribute

January 17, 2003  Photo Album pages have been redesigned and enhanced!  New photos are also available in the Grubb Photo Gallery

Dec 9, 2002  The Guest Book finally works!  Please sign in and see who else has come to the site!

Dec 8, 2002  Welcome to the new and improved Godsey Family web site.  As my Christmas gift to all my family, I have plans to drastically improve the web site.  It is now on a pay web host, so there will be numerous improvements:

bulletNo more ads!
bulletMore disk space (350 MB), so expect to see more pictures, videos and audio files.  If you have any, please send them to me at
bulletProtected Directories!  Now, the main content of the web site will be password protected so only those "in the family" can see the content.  For now, only the Videos are password protected.
