I’m a happy mom, a long time wife, and a perpetual student, I’m a born and bred southern California girl, I truly love sunny winters. I’ve been excitedly studying and practicing the profession of genealogy for more than 30 years, I truly believe I have the subject figured out, now if the records would cooperate I’d have the family all accounted and evaluated. I keep shaking the family tree and some interesting people fall out, the stories from their lives are extremely interesting.
I’m half Danish, and half mutt, mainly English and Scandinavian, I have been working on the mutt side of the family, well hey, it is the easiest to figure out, I dabble in Scandinavian records, but by no means have that area mastered; I have some intriguing family lines to research, beginning with Smith, every genealogist’s favorite variety of name. I have Hiller, Hopkins and Hirsch, along with Young, Butler and Stevenson; I also have Jordan, Jellison and Wescott; I’ve traced my Jordan family line back many, many generations, and have gathered some very interesting knowledge of New England history along the way.
Of the thousands of family that I have touched upon I have a few favorites, and those are the stories I hope to tell in this blog and by no means will these be complete profiles of the family member I highlight, just a fragment of their lives that I’ve found through my research. I welcome any and all helpful comments, and comments that will make me rethink the members I have highlighted are also welcome. So sit back with a can of Diet Coke and enjoy the stories.
