First, I'd like to dedicate the website to my Daddy, Thomas L. Bolt, 1926-2003, whom I miss dearly, for he was the one to first instill an appreciation of my Bolt heritage.  And he gave me life and love...the best gifts of all!

Next, I'd like to dedicate it to my Grandpa, Joe Bolt.  I hope he knows how much I appreciate the genealogy work he did, along with his erecting markers through the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution)

Most of all, I'm eternally grateful to my great-aunt, whom I never got the chance to meet, Margaret "Peggy" Eltinge Bolt.  I'm sure there are plenty of people out there, with Laurens ancestry, who are grateful for the cemetery transcription books.  But I am more blessed than most, since Peggy was also one of the very first Bolt researchers.  Even better than her Bolt research, are her wonderful grandchildren, my 2nd cousins. 

And now my thanks to all of my cousins...
..there are not words adequate to express my gratitude to all those who have helped me in my Bolt research, a heartfelt "thank you!" to you all!
But I would be remiss, if I did not at least mention the three who have absolutely spoiled me rotten with genealogical treasures, and continue to put up with me: JD Bolt, MGW and MW Bolt.

With love,
Katherine Hope Bolt-Borges

P.S. Many thanks to DL Bolt, CA Bolt, MW Bolt, JH and LL for your contributions to!!
