I first became interested in genealogy through my mother - she often spoke of her grandmother and great-grandmother's families. I was particularly interested when I realized they each married a man with the same uncommon surname, Dygert. (Yes, all has been explained.)

One day my late husband (then fiancé) and I were in a computer store. He was taking forever at what he was looking at, so I was wandering around and came upon one of the early editions of Family Tree Maker. At first I thought, no, I don't really know enough to spend money on software. And besides, where will I find the time? Which is very funny to look back on, now! As I kept waiting for Dan, I kept going back to the FTM box, and finally decided to get it. The rest, as they say, is history!

In addition to genealogy, I love to read, especially mysteries and urban fantasy. Favorite TV shows are Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Criminal Minds, and Walking Dead (although sometimes, while going "ewww!" during the last of those, I wonder why). And we have quite the little zoo, with horses, miniature donkeys, and llamas.

Recently you added a reference on the profile of Catherine Liles. This was helpful!! Although I was working on her profile and missed the change at the time I was able to confirm her husbands probable sources and will now update his profile. Again, thank you!

You can do what you like with county graphics. Just needed a place to park them for category box. Think it would be nice for all the county categories to have a map image
