I came on genealogy through the back door of my research on the woodworking mills of my hometown of Swanzey, NH. I have multiple generations on both sides of my family that were mill owners. I make my home in a converted warehouse of a bucket shop started by my great-great grandfather C.L. Lane.
I volunteer at the Historical Society of Cheshire County in Keene, NH and it was through a research project there that I learned about findagrave.com. My wife and I love exploring cemeteries and this gives us a chance to help some folks.
