I am a native Tennessean, relocated outside B'ham, AL from south GA. My roots are in Cherokee Co, NC, so I know the frustration of being away from the sources and places I would love to visit often. I have done genealogical research for 7 years, on my Adams and Deweese ancestors. I do a lot of volunteering for various states and sites, trying to pay forward the kindness I've been shown. I have adopted two US soldiers, and enjoy that entire program. I am a medical professional, have four dogs, and a Bombay cat, Hilary. I firmly believe that what you present to the Universe is what comes back to you, and that is how I want to live the rest of my life!
