If you're a Gose or know a Gose or would like to become a Gose (I have a lot of cute cousins and nephews) this is the page for you!

This page was created to help preserve our families history for future generations.
For all the students who've ever had a genealogy assignment and came up with nothing.
For all the mothers who can't understand why thier children act this way. (sorry they're geneticaly programmed)
For the sick who wonder how they got a genetic disorder.

For all the brave soldiers; to preserve the memory of all they fought for and the freedom we have because of them.
And for all of you who feel alone, you will always have family.
