I started my genealogy searching when I retired and my sons gave me an OLD, pieced-together computer so I would have "something to do". Games soon got boring, but I got hooked on the real search. I have found cousins that I thought were lost and found many more I never knew existed.
One of my sons received a book about his paternal grandmother's family and we had such a huge tree, we had to make two separate trees on Tribal Pages. Have traced one of his lines back to his 6th great-grandfather, John HART, signer of the Declaration of Independence. Other ancestors back to France in the 1600's, the Hugenots. And others back to Holland about 1390.
I have now raised 4 sons and 3 grandchildren,the youngest, was 20 in May. He is in the Army & just came home from Afghanistan. Two sons were in the Navy, one in the Air Force. My granddaughter was in the Navy and is now raising my two beautiful great-granddaughters. My husband and I were both Marines.
