My family returned to Central Texas a few months after I was born and remained there until early 2001.
In March of 2001 my family relocated to Sullivan County, New York, and I returned to Central Texas in December 2003. I met my future husband, Thomas, in the spring of 2006, and together we moved to Austin, Texas in July of that same year.
Thomas and I married in June 2015 at a small home gathering in Beaverton, Oregon and two weeks later we welcomed our only child.
My interest in genealogy comes from a few sources. The main factor was being the youngest of a large, but highly segmented, family. Both my parents had children from previous marriages before I was born, and both remarried spouses with children after I was born.
Another factor that has driven my interest in genealogy over the years has been learning little to nothing about my family history as a child.
I have a keen interest in cemeteries and their preservation. Any chance I get to travel will usually include a trip to a local cemetery. The more rural, the better!
My research goals include:
While I'm not officially part of the Biography Builders group here, another area of genealogical interest is biography building. I am actively combing through both my direct ancestors and their immediate families to help create biographies of their life. Doing this, I have found, forces me to re-look at the sources attached to an individual, not only in how they relate to that person's life, but how they may help tell the story of their other family members, as well.
