I started this blog for my father's side of the family. I wanted to share my journey of tracing my family history, find family, and hopefully inspire others to do the same. My journey in genealogy started when I was a teenager. I received a picture of an ancestor on my mother's side of the family in the mail. I was intrigued, fascinated by this old picture. I have been hooked ever since! Over the years it has grown into a huge passion. I have found so many cousins and information that I never knew. I even found a sister! I am happy to share the journey. Always following the spirit of the ancestors.
