I was born and raised in South Carolina, but moved to Europe in 2007 to marry the love of my life. My husband and I lived in Northern Germany until 2012, when we moved back to America to be closer to my family.. and were blessed with a daughter in 2013, who is the center of our lives.
My days are very busy with work and raising an active 4 year-old. Being a mother is certainly the journey of a lifetime..
My grandmother got me interested in family history about 20 years ago, and graciously allowed me to be the keeper of her research.. she had been tracing our roots for over 30 years.
Now that she has passed on, I have become the Family Historian and the keeper of records. It is a life-long passion that continues to fascinate, amaze and sometimes puzzle me.. but the path has taught me the value of patience and perseverance - both valuable life lessons.
I have expanded the foundations of my grandmother's research over the years, and now have a large database that grows ever larger! If anyone is interested in my family branches, I will be happy to share and exchange information.
