Story
Tagline
Trials and Tribulations (TNT) Family History is a genealogy website chronicling my research, ideas, experiences, and discoveries in family history.
Introduction

Shannon currently resides in Virginia with her family and pampered malamute. She earned her BS in Biology from Indiana University, with the aspiration of becoming a genetic counselor. After the birth of her first child, she resigned from her job in a quality control laboratory to stay at home. Since January of 2011 she has enjoyed uncovering the facts that go with the family stories told to her as a child.  Thus becoming in her husband’s words “the destroyer of family myths."

She has a personal blog called Trials and Tribulations of a Self-Taught Family Historian http://tntfamilyhistory.blogspot.com/ where she talks about her discoveries in pursing her family history and anything else that pops up. You can find Shannon on Facebook www.facebook.com/TntFamilyHistory and on Twitter @tntfamhist.
