Categories: Member, Abbott Name Study.
I became interested in family history in college, when I wrote a paper about our family's ancestors. My father "caught the bug" and has been very actively researching the family history ever since. He published a book, with primary sources, in 2002. I have now also "caught the bug".
I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in education, and was previously a special education teacher, but now I am in the medical IT industry. I volunteer on a human rights committee and as an educational advocate for several students.

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!
Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.
Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or special event. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.
Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.
