I have been working on genealogy off and on since I was a teenager helping my father search paper records in the NC and SC archives. I am returning after a hiatus of about 15 years (career, life, etc.), and have found a totally different landscape than when I last did any online work. I used to hang out and meet, and collaborate with lots of great people on the genweb boards which are now archived in the depths of Ancestry's website. I have been looking around for a few months and have been hesitant to create a presence or put any information on any of the online trees because I am totally appalled by the errors I see in so many of them.
So, I thought I'd hang out here for a while and see if this could become my new genealogy home on the web.
Looking forward to meeting some other serious researchers.
