Have you ever wondered how far back in your family tree you could go? Have you ever longed to know more about the roots from hence you came? Have you ever wondered what famous people in history you just might be related to? Well, I have.
After my retirement a few years ago, I quickly found myself interested in pursuing this venture while enjoying my coffee and newspaper (and laptop computer). With the right URLs, the right databases, etc., you can do it too. Not only has this brought me a lot of pleasure, it has also been something wonderful to share with my family — and even my Dad. For his birthday he received a new laptop computer in hopes he would get into this searching mode with me. Sharing your family roots with each other is a very rewarding pastime for everyone.
While following my family roots on this blog, I will be sharing with you some wonderful information to help you also locate your roots. Are you ready? Well then, let’s start our historical journey and watch the roots start growing faster along the way. Plan on having a fun time because you will!
