Yes, I'm one of those... Curious about a branch of my family tree I didn't know anything about (my mother's
natural father) and armed with subscriptions to Ancestry.com
and newspapers.com, I started a journey which has
allowed me to not only discover a lot of historical information but also connect with several living relatives
I didn't know existed, several of whom actually enjoyed being contacted!
And I got hooked(!) As with any family tree, there are some fascinating stories and some stones that are better left unturned.
I thought I'd post a few summaries of individuals and/or families to not only document for posterity
but also to share with other members of the family tree who may be interested.
And thanks to those individuals who have helped me in my journey, sharing with me all sorts of additional
materials - you know who you are!
