I inherited the Ancestry bug from my Uncle Drex who tirelessly went door-to-door asking questions to all of our relatives. I am fortunate to have much personal family documentation passed down through the generations.
After traveling around the globe as a successful business consultant, I found little time to be home or continue research. There comes a time when you approach two paths, I took the one less traveled. I decided to change careers and follow my passion. I became a Professional Genealogist and started my company, Ancestry Journey. Ancestry Journey combines research and travel to create a full understanding of your Ancestors.Want to Get To Know Me Better?
My personal primary genealogy focus is
My Non Genealogical Blogs:
Due to my Cemetery Projects, I tend to manage Profiles that I have no personal family line to. I love to turn over the Profile responsibilities to those that have personal interest & knowledge of an Ancestor. All, with few exceptions, of my Georgia Profiles can be transferred.
Practically every ancestor I have has touched the soil in the Southern states. Although my ancestors came to America as Hessian Soldiers, Ulster Scots, Rugged Highland Scots, or Optimistic Britons, they settled upon the lands of Colonial Maryland and Virginia where their descendants live today.
There is not a war in this new land that my Ancestors have not participated in. Many made it back to their families while some were taken Prisoner and haunted the remainder of their lives and others died tragically fighting for the cause.
DNA Tests show predominately European:
Birth Certificate lists Craig as last name. My biological father's identity was not revealed until I was 48 years old and confirmed with DNA tests.
Biological Father = Oden Lee Linger
Non-Biological Father = John Dale Craig
This is a list of my favorite profiles that I have had the honor to create or adopt and manage. I hope you will stop and take a moment to check them out. (This list changes.)

You have an amazing biography. The only thing I don't see is "Digital Afterlife Instructions". We are 14th cousins (uncertain) twice removed with a common ancestor Sir William Sidney (1482?–1554) who was an English courtier under Henry VIII and Edward VI. (Sidney-6) And congratulations on dreams fulfilled. Gina

I'm thinking that even if I find something of use, it will be part of the "upgrade" subscription. But I'll do some more searching this evening.
