Okay, let’s be honest. I am a casual genealogist. I’ve done enough of my family history to know where the holes are in my family tree, but sadly I don’t spend as much time as I&rs...

When you need a little more help with your genealogical research than friends can give, it may be time to hire a professional. How do you choose one? When money changes hands trust matters. There are no laws regulating who...

Newspapers can help bridge the gap in records and can give us a glimpse into our ancestor's lives. In the case of Sanford Rainwater, several newspaper articles helped me to learn things I otherwise might never have known abou...

I am a wife, mom, and grandma living in sunny California. My husband and I have five wonderful children, an awesome son-in-law, an amazing daughter-in-law, and an adorable grandson.  Besides family history research and blogging, I enjoy reading, singing, baking, watching classic movies and musicals, and spending time with my family.

I love genealogy and family history. I started my family history research following the death of my Grandfather, Debs Warren Webster, who passed away in 1994. He didn't really talk much about his family history (if at all). Debs was born in Brazil and my dad's family was from Norway and Sweden. I just assumed I didn't have any kind of family history tied to the early history of the United States. But, after looking through family photos and documents belonging to my Grandfather, Debs Webster, and through further research of my own, I discovered I was very wrong! Needless to say, my family history research has been a very interesting, enlightening, and fun (yes, I said fun) journey of discovery.

I currently serve as a Family History Consultant and previously taught a family history class for six years at church. I have also previously served as a volunteer librarian at our local Family History Center.
