I have been researching my family genealogy for over 10 years now. I began researching my partner's family first. Her father died when she was 4 and wanted to know more about him. Unfortunately, he was from south africa and that has proven to be a challenge--even 10 years later. But, I know the difference photos can make and how important headstone information can be in confirming information. Coupled with an enjoyment of exploring outdoors, i enjoy the history of searching for small, out of the way or family graveyards when the weather is below 100 outside.
