Story
Introduction
Hi! I'm a mid-life  woman with a high stress professional job that I sometimes love; I'm a bookworm who doesn't have enough time to read; I lean left politically; I'm a liberal Christian (yep, we exist), and an insomniac. My newest passion is family history. I love researching my ancestors and finding out their stories; I'm not only collecting names. I've also started a blog to keep my family informed of my research, help me analyze my research,  make new friends, and possibly find new cousins. ; ) Climbing My Family Tree - http://jahcmft.blogspot.com/.  Stop in and say hi! And I'm on Twitter at https://twitter.com/JoAllisonHenn
