I'm a natural born U.S. citizen. My father is John Charles Higdon, Sr. and my mother is Linda Marie (Baumgart) Higdon. I have one younger brother, John Charles Higdon, Jr. I was born in the state of Maryland. After living in Maryland for about 7 years, my family moved to Kentucky where we lived for approximately another 7 years. After which, we moved to the state of Alabama when my father got a job transfer. While there, I met and married my husband, Steven Leon Segers. Together, we have one daughter.
My family's genealogical roots appear to be primarily: English, German, and Scotch-Irish. I'm also attempting to trace my husband's lineage and, thus far, his genealogical roots appear to be: English, Irish, and possibly Scandinavian.
My aunt, Billye Higdon, used to be our family's amateur genealogist. She passed away a few years ago and I have inherited both her research and position. I hope to honor her memory by continuing where she left off and doing my best to fill in the blanks.
