Keeping Grandma Alive...and all the others, too (including yourself)
Welcome! I’m Nancy. I’m a wife and a mom and a vegetable gardener, a writing tutor, a writer, and a lover of puzzles and board games, and a Christian. I am also a genealogist, or a family historian if you like that label better!
I was bitten by the genealogy bug when I was a teenager. I fondly remember afternoons of sitting at a microfilm or fiche reader at the National Archives in Washington DC, and flipping through delicate, aged documents at several historical societies. I’ve found lost relatives and cemeteries, and re-found some relatives, too.
I don’t want my ancestors (or myself for that matter) to become just names and dates on a family tree chart. My goal is make sure that doesn’t happen.
I’ll never be done researching, but I’ve ventured into the next stage of genealogy – compiling and sharing all the tidbits of information I’ve learned over the years. Not just the names and dates, but who they were and what was important to them.
I hope you’ll join me, whether you are in research mode, sharing mode, or a mix of the two. I’m sure we can learn from each other!
