In 1983 I became interested in recording what my dad could tell me about the origins of his ancestors. Dad was the oldest living child in his family and the same for my mom in her family. Both sets of my grandparents had been deceased for almost 20 years and dad was in failing health so I figured had better find and save as much as I could for my own family history. Dad got me started with what he knew and I have spent the next 33 years getting to where I am today. Fortunately mom made it 22 more years so I could learn what she knew as he longest living member of her family.  She got interested in what I was trying to do and I spent the week of her birthday each year visiting and doing research on her side of my tree with her. She would spend much of her time he rest of the year contacting local relatives and checking local sources. It gave me lots to talk about when I called her each week. I treasure those memories. Now that I am retired I work daily to make my research as documented as I can. The links on my webpage are meant to help others with their research. As a teenager I would spend a week each summer visiting my dad’s parents. I wish now that I had gotten the genealogy bug sooner. I could have had so many questions answered more to come in the next couple of post. It is my purpose to help others and hopefully get my 4 grandchildren to know what I know about our family history. This post is long but I hope you will come back often, I hope you find this useful please feel free to ask questions or have request that I can try to help you with. I get great satisfaction helping others discover their family. Today’s younger generation get all their information online and that is why I hope to share through this blog the stories I can share. Otherwise it stands a great chance of being lost. Till Next Time…
