About Our Family Research
I started researching my husband's family history around 7 years ago after the birth of our daughter. I wanted her to be able to have a written history of where she came from so that when she one day had a family of her own, she could pass it on to her children. I was lucky enough to get most of my information from the older relatives in the family before they passed on, and it at least gave me a reference point for beginning. Another great thing about getting info this way is that I got to hear the stories, nicknames, etc., that accompanied their names. I truthfully haven't worked on this for over 3 years, due to a move across the country, but have now decided to continue where I left off. Hope you enjoy visiting with us, and maybe we can exchange some good tips & info.
