Introduction I am a mom and grandmother, and family historian. My interest in genealogy began with a shoebox full of newspaper clippings and old photographs shared with me by an elderly aunt. All of my grandparents (paternal and maternal) had passed on long before I was born. I developed a curiosity about my roots, and the people who had beem my forebears. That curiosity developed into a life-long genealogy hobby. I have been able to search and document my family tree going back many generations on both my maternal and paternal lines. Exciting discoveries about our roots such as Civil War Veteran ancestors, Revolutionary War ancestors, and royal ancestry make the hobby interesting and rewarding for all concerned. More importantly, knowing our roots helps us to understand who we are, why we may look or act the way we do, and where we came from. My goal is to document and preserve as much family history as possible for my children, grand-children, and future generations. If I am remembered for only one thing, I want it to be that I am the one who preserved our family history and stories for all to share in the years ahead.
