I've been happily married for 27 years, love life and my family.

I've been actively researched genealogy for the past nearly 22 years. The last 14 1/2 I've posted and managed 8 online family trees on Ancestry.com I've taken genealogy courses through Boston University. I've been writing poetry and stories most of my life and have written many biography projects for other people. I have a passion to reconnect people with their ancestors and believe by knowing our family roots and the lives of those who came before us, we can truly come to know ourselves in new and wonderful ways.

I love my country, keep up with current politics and am very politically active. My hobbies include growing exotic fruit trees from seeds, writing articles, stories and poetry, digital photography, computers, collecting ancestors photos as well as collecting old historic newspapers, antiques and of course... eating dark chocolate!
