Saturday Night Genealogy Fun On Sunday!

Below is my response to the Genea-Musings blogs Saturday Night Genealogy Fun challenge.

I started my genealogy research in 2001 with one goal in mind...find my paternal grandfather. I have done that and picked up a couple of great-grandfathers along the way! My current goal is to fully document as many generations as I can with evidence supporting my pedigree. I hope I have another 30-40 years to work towards this goal, but one just never knows. My parents both died in their mid 70's, I hope I have that and more.

My research has come in bits and pieces. I tend to spend more time on genealogy in the winter months. Research time also has revolved around family demands such as school activities and sports. My son leaves for college in 12 days! No more football games, baseball games or Booster Club meetings! I anticipate having more time to not only research, but expand my knowledge in genealogy by attending more classes and seminars.
