About me

Location Northwest Ohio, United States
Introduction I am a grandmother of 12 who is dedicated to insuring that everyone in my family has access to the best possible family history I can give them. I became interested in genealogy when I was a teenager thanks to my dad's older sister, Aunt Daisy. I have seen major changes in research over the years, but one thing never changes. It can be a very expensive hobby. Some expenses can be controlled while others need a little "creative budgeting." My goal is to find the most genealogy information, both online and off while staying within a reasonable budget. I live in Northwest Ohio so much of my experience is centered around Ohio and Kentucky research. Do keep in mind though that a lot of your ancestors probably passed through these states on their way west. Ohio is sometimes referred to as the "Crossroads of America." I am a member of the National Genealogical Society, and the Ohio Genealogical Society plus OGS chapters in Clermont and Lucas counties. I hope you will find this blog informative and please feel free to share any information and thoughts you might have.
