I am a retiree who said "when I retire I am going to research my family", and I have. I find that I love it, and can just as interested in anyones genealogy. So I have expanded into the Spouses and as favors to spouses of cousins. I have in the past 5 1/2 years researched over 51000 people. I am an self taught researcher, but very determined, and I get the job done. I spend all my summers in Thompson Michigan and hit the cemeteries. I give permission for use of any photos that I contribute to be used by interested researchers.
