While I was in Miami last month, my co-worker texted me. She was at an estate sale and found 300+ “love letters” and thought I might be interested. Well, duh. Long story short (and $100 later), I was the proud owner of 347 letters dating from the late…

Story
Tagline
I want to connect with other people in the genealogy world. However, if you add me to your circles and I can't tell that you have an interest in genealogy ... chances are that I won't add you back and will likely block you altogether.
Introduction
Paralegal by day, but my alter ego is a Genealogist.  I have been working on my genealogy in fits and starts since about 1990, when my grandfather passed away and I inherited his research. I am currently enrolled in ProGen 24, working my way toward genealogy certification. You can contact me at lostancestors [at] gmail [dot] com.

I am a member of the Kiva Genealogists for Families team. Please consider joining the team and make loans to help alleviate poverty worldwide and create a new family tradition at the same time! 
Bragging rights
I completed my AAS in Paralegal Studies at Chattanooga State in 2011, at the age of 42 ... and survived.
