Genealogy has been my passion for over forty years. Because finding family and learning to "know" them is so interesting, I want to record here enough information to give those who seek their ancestors a good start toward locating the correct people.
I vow to write information for which I have official documentation only. It is a joy to chart information I find in such a way that pieces can be put together to prove who is related. I often use an Excel spreadsheet to lay out the data to see how records fit together.
I greatly enjoy linking people together with other family members. My genealogy experience is rather extensive, so it is usually easy for me to interpret confusing records. As I link, I imagine excited family members sometime in the future discovering a piece of their family puzzle.
