I've been doing genealogy actively since 1978, but was interested since I was about 8 years old, asking my Grandparents questions about their Grandparents, etc. I compiled the 838 page A JACKSON FAMILY HISTORY:PUTNAM COUNTY, TENNESSEE AND BEYOND. . . . which I published in 1993. Find-A-Grave is a wonderful vehicle to share pictures, and genealogical information to others. I recently retired as a Music Teacher, and spend several hours a day working on Genealogy including Find-A-Grave.
