I was 14 years old when my grandparents came for a visit and presented our family with a blue three ring binder. Inside were family group sheets, pedigree charts, notes and stories; all the research my grandma had collected on the family at that time.

As I looked through the pedigree charts and noticed empty lines, I felt a great desire to fill them. I've been researching my ancestors ever since. I am passionate about genealogy, for it is a source of great joy in my life. I hope to spread that enthusiasm to others and help others with it whenever I can.
