I got interested in family research in 1999 when I had to produce a family tree for an Anthropology class. I had to get a twelve foot roll of butcher paper to complete the assignment because, standing on the shoulders of giants (my wonderful family researchers), I had too many ancestors to fit on a single sheet of paper. In the years since I've added to my history and been able to trace some of our dead-end lines!
I love to learn about my family and help others learn about theirs... Seems to make new friends, new family connections and answer haunting questions sometimes.
I live by my mom and her cousin's rule though... our ancestors will let us find them when they want to be revealed!
