Following the suggestion of Michael John Neill of "Genealogy Tip of the Day" I have started a blog detailing some of my family tree information and research in the hopes of connecting with others interested in genealogy and maybe even distant family members!
I have been interested in discovering my family tree since I was a child. But other than writing down my parents names, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins I really didn't start working on it until 1994 or so. I didn't have anyone telling me how to do research so I didn't get very far, although I did find some information.
My mother was also working on researching her side of the family tree, and when I moved back to California in 1995 I learned about using census records at the National Archives in San Francisco. When my mom died in 1997 I inherited all her research, and have been working on it off and on since then.
Course my early research contains many undocumented facts because like many I didn't understand the importance of using source information. Have been trying to go back and fill in those blank spots.
I love to talk to others about family history so feel free to comment and/or send me a message.
My children's sweet 16 are: Lucier, Delisle, Bowens, Adams, Riordan, Mooney, Janvrin, Miers, Newman, Simmons, Boyer, Antrim, Busch, Shields, Morgan, George. In future posts I will post a general Ahnentafel Chart as well as descendant charts for specific ancestors, as well as some blogs on my research.
