My Purpose for This Blog

Although I have had an interest in my ancestors for as long as I can remember, and I had collected a few stories and lists of relations, it wasn’t until all of my children had left home that I had a significant amount of time to devote to family history research. In 2010 I obtained a membership to a well-known genealogy website and began learning about the vast number of resources that are available on the Internet.

Subsequently, I started visiting historical societies, libraries and cemeteries. My collection of resources has grown and my knowledge of my ancestors continues to expand. I now desire to share what I have learned with my relatives and others who are interested in history. This blog is the avenue through which I can pass along the pieces of family history I have learned and highlight the legacies that have been left behind by our ancestors.

For your enlightenment and enjoyment,
