My wife and I have been heavily involved in family history on ancestry.com the past year and we've taken a step back from paying for that membership and are now trying to establish ourselves on Find A Grave. We are going to be visiting cemeteries, libraries and such to do some back-end research now.
My Grandma Mary and her side of the family, the Howards have been mysterious to me and always had my interest. I have a picture from her that is her grandmother Susie Francis Howard with her uncles (I think).
Another mystery on the other side of the family is trying to get a picture of my great great grandma Annie Lou Tungate. My grandma would really like to have the picture because she named her daughter after her.
I have a passion for my surname Chilton, which I hope to fill in as many blanks as possible. One thing I wasn't prepared for when I discovered pictures of my great grandpa Porter Chilton, was the uncanny resemblance to myself he had when he was younger. That's what makes me love this hobby, those little things like that connect you with your past.
