In 1991 I became a grandmother for the first time. I realized I really didn't know much about my ancestors. When your younger you not too interested where you came from, but as you get older you develope a need to pass down to your children and grandchildren your family history. I have been researching my family history for sixteen years now, but I've just scratched the surface. Some of my information I have gotten from living family members and some from Ancestry.com. I may be 100% right on my research or I may be far off. I have done the best I can, but if anyone reading my research finds something wrong, please contact me and we will discuss it and possibly change what I have. This sixteen year journey has been so exciting and fulfilling, I really don't want to see it end. I will continue searching as long as I can and then I'll pass it down to my daughter, Erica.
