I became interested in genealogy back when i was in College many years ago and took a class on it when i grew up in Alabama. I think my interest started because my great grandmother had kept a list of family members with all the dates on my mothers side way back to before the Civil War so that was a nice start. She also had a big box of old family letters and papers that were over 100 years old.
I didn't do a lot back then and a lot of time passed. I have lived in North Carolina for many years now. A cousin of mine once removed got interested in genealogy and sent me an invite to join ancestry.com which got me interested again and I have been researching off and on for almost 2 yrs now.
Also another researcher I knew about who wrote my grandfather many years ago lived near me in NC so I contacted him and have gotten some info from him as a long time researcher.
I very much enjoy finding out info about ancestors of mine and especially finding old photos. Seeing family resemblances really shows how genetics can really play a huge part in where we came from.
Please do not take any of my photos without asking me first especially people photos for I have done a lot of extensive work in photoshop on those. Thanks.
