I am looking for any of my family members far and wide.
I don't really know alot of my relatives, but I am trying to remedy that. I want to give my children(well myself also), a chance to get to know our history as well as hopefully finding some living relatives too!
I have been researching my family tree on and off since my early 20's and recently have really recommitted myself to the task (I am now 42..lol).
Well I will come back and post often as I find out information and hopefully I will be hearing from some relatives or friends.
Talk to you's later.
