I'm a native Californian, but I've lived in Frederick, Maryland and in Broomfield, Colorado; and now live in Scottsdale, Arizona. This should be our last job-related move because my husband will be retiring in a few years. This is our first move as "empty nesters." It's very strange. We're planning on moving back to Colorado once hubby retires, but I am sure that I'll convince my husband to accompany me on many genealogy-related trips. We have four grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and a sweet baby granddaughter! We're also "pet parents" to a dog and a cat--both rescues. Genealogy research has been my obsess--I mean, HOBBY, since 2008. My paternal "Yankee" lines are: Wilcox, Harry, Charlton, Welles, Vincent, Kent, Sykes, Arnold, Purvis, Berry, etc. My maternal Southern lines are Pickett, Gazaway, Mitchell, Fowler, Strickland, Ellington, George, Langston, White, Biffle, Gillespie, etc. My husband's (mostly midwest) lines are Jenkins, McCoy, Norton, Bell, Ott, Deyo, Ashbaugh, Judkins, Rice, Taylor, Simpson, Gilpin, Artz, etc.Please don't hesitate to either post publicly or send me a message privately, if you think we might share ancestors and wish to compare notes.
