Welcome to Geneagenie, where I share the colorful history of my family, including some Vance, Heisig, Scott genealogy, as well as Moore and Polk on my mom’s side. There are some preachers, blacksmiths, judges, lawyers, along with their smart and resilient wived keeping them on their toes (and fed).

I find it intriguing to surmise what life must have been like in their time, knowing the little we actually know, but I share what we DO know here.

See the Posts, for current research, or go to static pages on specific people in our tree.

I’m adding photos and documents to Moore and Polk trees on So if you want to check out those trees you can get more details on Ancestry, even if you only have a guest account. If you want me to share those trees directly with you, shoot me an email.

Feel free to comment or ask questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Would it be possible to get digital files of some of these pictures? We are related to the Heisigs through Carla Heisig Harris, and I have a picture of Carla and her mother Vida, but most of these pictures are new to me. Thank you!

    • Sorry I did not see your comment until now. I had a personal tragedy and was on hiatus from the site for several years. Did you find what you were looking for?

    Hello! I am trying to get more information about Reverend Ferdinand Heisig’s parents. Could you tell me where I could find some records about him? Thank you!
