Welcome to my genealogy blog and website! If you’re here then you are probably interested in genealogy or the families I talk about on a regular basis. This blog was started as a way for me to easily share with my close and extended family members the progress I am making in researching our family history. Along the way, I learn and make mistakes. This blog showcases that as I go along. Entries vary from ancestor timelines, research details, and sometimes even tutorials on how I do certain things on the website.

I don’t have a formal education in genealogy or web design. However, I have been designing, coding and producing websites since for over 15 years. I have also been researching genealogy for 15 years. This domain and website has been in some shape or form since 2003. I really ramped up my research after my Grandma died in 2005. I have lived far away from my extended family my whole life and I’ve always been fascinated with how big my family really is. After she was gone, I really felt I was picking up the baton she held because she was very focused on keeping the family tree updated as each new member came along.

If you’ve come across the page and anything looks familiar or you want to know more, please contact me! I would love to hear from you. I have a list of my social media accounts in the contact section or you can just comment on the blog. I try to answer everything that comes through but don’t always make it, so if you don’t hear back from me, please try again!
