Welcome to my whimsical explorations into my family genealogy. I am not an expert of the subject and this will not be a blog that should be viewed as a tremendous contribution to the already high quality research blogs that are out there.
However, I do think I have learned a thing or two over the last few years doing this research and this will be the venue in which I try to pass those lessons on. Mostly, it will be an outlet for me to report and reflect on my experiences.
I first became excited about genealogy several years ago when pondering a family mystery that had arisen in light of some curious facts. My mother had some documents to hand over to me and I was hooked. Over the ensuing years I would dabble here and there, occasionally having some successes, but for the most part it was a part-time thing.
However, this last year and a half I have really dived in and have work very diligently on putting together as much of my family tree as possible. One point of clarification here is needed; I have been exclusively working on my mother’s side of the family. Most of my father’s history has already been laid out.
