Researching my ancestry and family tree has been my most passionate and primary hobby for many years. As a result of having a website since the onset of my research, I’ve dialogued with dozens of distant cousins, and some have even provided me with photographs of my ancestors that my family had never seen. Though I do not descend from anyone that is even close to being remotely famous, it does not change the fact that I find it fascinating to research my family tree. There are “skeletons in the closet” of every family tree, and I’ve learned many interesting, scandalous, and crazy stories about my ancestors and relatives. While I am not a professional or certified genealogist, I have diligently learned to apply the same type of recognized principles and standards of proof to my research methods. The photo shown above is a stock photograph, which was sourced here.
Listed below is extensive information on my family tree research, which includes my family tree database. Articles and summaries of specific topics will also be posted, such as how I discovered that one of my ancestors was adopted. Also included are some resources and learning material about family tree research, which includes tips, techniques, and resources that I have applied to my own research, or have found helpful. This list will be continually updated and expanded.
