Introduction
Hi, I am a mom of 5 "grown" kids, with three daughter's-in-law and 9 grandchildren thrown in. I have loved family history since I was little listening to stories my grandmothers would tell. When I was talking about what I do to someone, they said "I guess you would have to like your family to want to do this". I do love my family and the more I learn about them, the more I love all of them.
Right now I am working on getting the education to become a Professional Genealogist and become Certified.
My other love is Photography. Love taking pictures, my husband called me "the family photographer"
