Bio

I was charged with keeping the family history by my grandmother who had given me her bible with family birth, marriage and death dates. I was very young and there were no more pages to write in the bible. So I just felt guilty for a number of years without doing anything.

What happens to us at about 50 when we feel our mortality and yearn for knowledge of our roots? In 1997 two years after my mother died, I bought myself a genealogy program for Christmas and spent New Years Day adding 300 close family members. And the rest, as they say, is history!
