The genealogy journey started for me many years ago.  However, over time my desire to learn more about my ancestors beyond the basic facts grew deeper.  They were more than birth, marriage and death dates.  What hardships did they face, what was happening around them that impacted their lives, why did they move…all of these questions have lead me on a journey to dig deeper.  But what good is learning if you don’t share it.  I’ve resisted a blog because I thought “what could I possibly add”?  But then realized it’s about sharing and connecting.  Here’s to hoping these family insights will connect cousins that share a common hertiage.
