I began researching my family history in 1998. I had made attempts in previous years by talking to family members, but not knowing the right questions to ask made it a pitiful attempt. Since I began my genealogy search after the Internet was available I spent countless spare time hours on the computer digging. After hitting a brick wall I could not overcome I began a Bridgman DNA project that has not yet produced the breakthrough to take that next step. Early on I had begun going to every cemetery in and around Dinwiddie County, VA, taking photos and learning how much history and information is available by looking at grave markers. My family has been in this area for over 200 years and I currently have over 600 photos of markers from local cemeteries. I will attempt to help others gain information through photographs when they are unable to access the information themselves. It is a gift every time because you never know what that information will reveal.
