I have been interested in family history since I was around 10 years old. Both of my grandmothers helped me with information and I took a lot of notes. I am a retired music teacher. I have always been interested in history and geography. My father was also interested in family history. I have several friends who are genealogists. The Indiana State Library and the Allen County (Fort Wayne) Library are wonderful resources. I am mostly interested in my family and my wife's family. My home base is Indiana. My wife and I have relatives that lived in Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming. We also have roots from Germany, England, Scotland, and Ireland. Find A Grave is a wonderful site for genealogy.
