After losing my parents in 2001 my ancestral quest began. While going through their documents the questions started to pile up, who was this? who was that? etc. Ultimately, I decided I would try to get the answers to these questions and find my ancestors. I have been working my way back in time ever since. I've made a lot of "newbie" mistakes but I've also gotten very lucky a few times! I've acquired a couple of research partners along the way as well as a few new cousins.
Genealogy has turned into a life-long hobby that I'm very passionate about. While I've no plans to become a professional researcher, I do enjoy volunteering with several organizations to surround myself in the entire business of genealogy.
