|About Our Family Research
I began researching my family completely by accident. I was in the public library one day and saw these "old" people with microfilm. I asked someone what they were doing and she said, "Want to try your family name?". I was hooked. That was almost nine years and 6,000 linked names on my family tree ago. I am a detail person and look for the smallest, most minute details. Sometimes days will produce just a piece of the puzzle. But that is okay. I know who I am and from where I came. I believe in a life everlasting. This is my family. It will be my family for all of eternity. I cannot tell you the feeling of standing at the grave of a family member and knowing this is where my family once gathered, be it 50, 100, to 188 years ago and still we go on. I laugh when some ask me, "Aren't you finished with your research?". It will NEVER be finished!!!!
