My name is Lex and I am a 19 year old History major who has started researching my genealogy. It started as a personal interest to write an essay about early modern European warfare, and has spiralled into my favourite side hobby. I am very grateful that my Father, Mother, and Step-Father's families have all done genealogical research so I am just researching all of the information myself.
My DNA kit comes in soon and I am excited to see if there is anything else hidden. My father's side is Russian-Mennonite and my grandfather came over with his family. My mother's side is Irish-Scot and came over much earlier. I am also very grateful the Mennonites are so organized with their baptisms, haha!
I have met a few dead ends and am just here to see if I can scrounge up any more information. I am very excited to research and see if others can help, and possibly offer my help to others.
