I l♥ve walking through cemeteries & taking photo's. I enjoy researching my family tree & helping others with theirs. I've been researching my lineage since I was eleven years old by asking questions about the family & writing all my collected information down. By age 15 I asked a genealogist questions on how to research my ancestors even further? By age 26 I began researching online after receiving my 1st Family Tree Maker for my birthday from my father. I've read genealogy articles to help me with my journey over the years. By age 31 I became more invested into researching & had to learn the hard way not to go by what others have added to their trees without 1st checking their sources if sources are noted AND to always do my own footwork repeatedly checking everything for clues. Even after all these years I am hitting brick walls or finally breaking through some walls which is incredibly rewarding whenever this occurs. I consider myself both a Genealogist AND a Family Historian. I also consider myself human & know I make mistakes no matter how careful I may think I am. On that note if you feel anything I've posted is incorrect let me know & I'll review & correct.
I'm no longer AS active on Findagrave as I use to be since motherhood. It may take me a long time before updating pages or transferring memorials over BUT I do eventually answer any & all requests and enjoy adding to bios.
If anyone would like family or close friends to be transferred over to you please let me know. I'd be more than happy to have someone I entered in to be maintained by loved ones. ☺ I will not transfer over my direct line though... 😘
I occasionally research additional information for the memorials I've added to link them to their family and to help relatives who are searching for them. This may include obituaries, census, death, marriage & birth records as well as military records. If you'd like to double check any of my researched information below is a list of sources used.
