I have been researching my family's history since January of 2011, and in North America I have ancestors from New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland.
"Across the pond," my ancestors were from Northern Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, the Netherlands, France, and Germany.
Since starting my genealogical journey, I've been lucky enough to have been able to join the DAR, as well as the Mayflower Society! I had no idea I was even eligible until a couple of years ago.
I've met so many wonderful people since I began researching, and feel like I'm creating the family I never really had. I'd love to hear from "cousins," no matter how distant.
