I was appointed family historian by my grandmother and some of her sisters in 1962. I agreed to write, not memorize, and proceeded to do so. The beginning seemed straightforward. I'd write out what I was told and move on to things of greater interest to me. I must admit to being hooked. Totally. Thanks, Nannie!

I am always happy to connect with others who are or might be connected with profiles I manage, though not all are related to me. Contact me with questions about them.
