I'm a 71-year-old retired teacher with a passion for genealogy, who's been at it since 1998. Since retiring in December 2005, I've worked in the Genealogy/Carlsbad History Collection Division of our local library. Our Carlsbad location ranks among the very top of California's genealogical collections. Most of us have sixteen great-great-grandparents. Two of mine were descended from numerous English families who sailed to New England, beginning in the 1630s. My other great-great-grandparents came to America between 1843 and 1872. Five of these came from Sweden, three from Norway, two from Ireland, two from Luxembourg, and two from Canada.
