I am starting this WordPress blog as a way to document happenings in my daily life. I find as I get older, I feel the need to connect to my roots (geneology has become a mini- obsession of late) and by journaling, I hope to document parts of my life history as well as current happenings. I hope to capture my current world, as well as the world my ancestors knew. I have come numerous stories involing my relatives that I feel would be of interest to future generations, and hope to chronicle these stories on this blog.
My grandmother was always interested in genealogy. I listened to her stories and love of the DAR (Daughter’s of the American Revolution- she was a proud member), but was never really interested in my family tree. My how time changes a person. My grandmother passed away in 1999, long before Ancestory.com, and I often think about how she would have TOTALLY loved the site. And since starting my research, I have on many occasions, thought of my grandmother and how I wish I had spent more time listiening to her stories on our family history. But I am continuing her research, and for that I feel she would be proud of me.
