I've been working on genealogy for over 25 years.

My older sister had been working on our family line (Long / Harris / Alvey / Higdon) long before I began and I would be bored to tears when trying to carrying on a conversation with her as it always resorted back to family history…..that is until I had children of my own.

My family lineage is a "Heinz 57", we are a mixture of Scottish, Irish, German, and family lore (yet to be proven), Native American. UPDATE: Results of Ancestry DNA
I am 100% European
Ireland 40%
Europe West 27%
Scandinavia 16%
Italy/Greece 8%
Trace Regions 9%

One side of my late husband's family (McCarty / Hughes) traces back to Edward Doty and some ancestors were politicians, religious leaders, first settlers into an area, etc. There are numerous books written about these various family lines, plus he had two great-aunts that were very involved in the DAR. The other side (Zimmer / O’Keefe) were immigrants to the US in the late 1800’s and we knew very little about them. My father-in-law did not speak much of his family but luckily he had a sister who shared a lot of information with me. So when my children asked “where did the Zimmer’s come from”, I began the search and haven’t stopped since.

Lines I'm working on - Zimmer, O’Keefe, McCarty, Hughes, Meng, Copeland, Buchanan, Higdon, Alvey, Clemons, Bradley, Smith, Wood, Doty, Sutton, Kinnick, Case, Pebernat, Sandifer, Dawson, Gourley and many others.
