I have been researching my family since Jr. High School. My family names are Browning and Droddy. It was slow going at first but since I got a computer in March 2000 it has been easier. I have found two distant cousins and waiting to hear about a third.
These surnames are from my father's side of the family. No one knows for sure about my mother's side of the family.
Hulsey is from my husbands side. I just started researching his family in June 2000. I have already found his great aunt.
I am the mother of 5, so I don't have a lot of spare time to myself. When I'm researching my family surnames, I always watch for the surnames that family and friends are researching.
I have to say my family has enjoy the positive reunions that we have had. They were all such a joy to meet. Maybe someday we can all meet in person; without the computer.
