wait until April 8th. That’s the day programming for the Ohio Genealogical

Countdown: Top 10 Posts of 2014

the top 100 songs on New Year’s Eve. They’d play on the radio all day, with the
number one song announced about midnight. I remember when Three Do...

What’s your earliest or most
vivid Thanksgiving memory? Have you written it down, or at least told it to
someone? These days, with my father suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, I’m

Family history researcher and writer, with special interests in genealogy education and Ohio ancestors
Introduction
I'm a family history researcher, writer, and blogger based in Central Ohio. A Sense of Family chronicles my journey into family history, and I'd love to have you read along. In the process, I hope to give you some tips and resources you can use to trace and record the stories of your own family. I also offer professional genealogy services at Buckeye FamilyTrees, where I specialize in researching Ohio ancestors.
