I have been doing family history research since I was little. My mother and grandmother worked on it every summer when we visited my grandparents. I became more interested when I got into high school and college. My husband is also into genealogy and we both usually get "the bug" at the same time. We have done two cross-country trips as a family - both times taking time to visit distant cousins, take headstone photographs, as well as any and all information that we can find on our families.
