I am overjoyed that I was Blessed with the genealogy bug from my mother, Nadine Smithson. She kept lots of notes from other family members and had passed them on to me. I had the privilege of taking that information and plugging it in to Ancestry.com during my 14 day free trial, and haven't stopped yet. My family doesn't quite understand my addiction, but one day one of them will be happy that all the ground work is done for them and hopefully one will follow in my footsteps. A big thank you to all of you who came before me, I wouldn't even want to imagine how hard it was to do this years ago!
