I am retired and worked all my life in California in the Construction industry.
I started reserarching my family history around 1978. My mother got me started showing me a yellow tablet page that (I believe my great aunt Lizzy sent to her on the Blackwells) showed how the Blackwells came to America. I was hooked immediatly and had to learn more of who I was.
I am still learning..
After my mother died we moved back home to Missouri. I bought a small place with a few acres and built me a shop for my wood working..
We have taken a trip to Kentucky to visit kin I had never met and visited ancestors grave sites..
Life is still very interesting..
