About Me

My interest in genealogy coincided with the advent of AOL’s flat-rate monthly service of $19.95 in the late 1990s.  My mother, from the New York City area, and my father, from the small town of Borger, Texas, were both interested in family history and asked me to look for their families on my new Internet. I was hooked when I found both families connected in Bienville Parish, Louisiana.

I live in Virginia with a wonderful husband who actually listens to many of my genealogy ramblings.  I have two grown children who have spent a few of their childhood vacation days in cemeteries or libraries.  Genealogy, my favorite pastime, is significantly different from my professional career. I am a speech-language pathologist at a local school system where I work in the assistive technology department.

I maintain family history web pages at Rootsweb’s Freepages with over 75 pages of information and photographs about my families. However, as of December 2017, the pages have not been available due to Rootswebs's security issues. I have begun adding the information from the pages to my blog as I do not know when or if the pages will be available.
