Time to introduce myself

+9 votes
Although I am new to WikiTree I am not new to genealogy. I have been researching my family history for about 15 years. I had to take a bit of a break when my husband was sent to Shanghai, China for 4 1/2 years.  I was home for a few years as well before I picked it up again. My mother-in-law passed away very recently and my husband inherited hundreds of old photos of their family and friends. That, of course, piqued my interest so I am diving back in the deep end. I am researching my McKean family as well as my husband's family. I'm getting brick walls with his Scott and Priest families. They are both very common surnames I'm finding.

Well, you've arrived at the right site. We work together, combine our individual family trees into one large tree and discover in the process how we are all related. So welcome Cousin Rosanne. We're all terribly glad to "meet" you. If you have any questions or need any help- we're here, just ask!

Speaking of which, how are you Kristina? Been wondering about you.
Hi Dorothy, I am alive and well. In January I agreed to help out a friend with his goat dairy (80 goats being milked and cheese making all day).  Turned out to be more than a few weeks of helping out, working 5 hours a day, 6 days a week (I am too old for that).  I am cutting back and trying to check in here as often as I can.  WikiTree is a great place to make friends.
All the volcano news had me concerned, love WikiTree as you do Kristina! And hi  to you, Dorothy B- appreciate all of your help with military sites.
