I hope to use this site to share my journey into the past. I have been researching my family tree since 1973 when my 8th grade English teacher gave our class an assignment to find out about our family history. Starting the “old-fashioned way,” I gathered together what information my parents had at home, then wrote letters to relatives and governmental agencies to collect information and documents. Now, with the internet, we have instant access to so many records on-line. I love the detective work! I have also enjoyed meeting distant cousins and other researchers around the U.S. who share a passion for genealogy. And the best part is going there in person… seeing for myself the homes, towns, churches and cemeteries that my ancestors knew. I’ll tell you about a few of those marvelous road trips.
