My name is Stef Anderson and I am addicted to Genealogy. I'm fairly new. I've been compiling a database offline in RootsMagic.
My first project (I guess I would call it) is to trace my mother's mother's line. My mother's mother's mother's mother and so on. I do research the entire family along the way because it's so difficult to get a full picture just focusing on the person.
So far, I'm to my 4x great-grandmother. The surnames I'm focused right now are WEBER and REUSSWIG from Utica, New York. Most of my WEBER family settled in Minnesota and North Dakota with what appears to be a massive migration to Oregon (many related families over a handful of years). They settled in Silverton, Oregon and have been populating the Northwest US ever since.
Sometimes, I feel like I'm spending my time doing unproductive things. Other times, I wonder why I spend so much time doing any of this. Usually, I really enjoy growing my database of story facts. I also really enjoy learning about history along the way.
Pleasure to be here! Hope I can help!
