I am interested in communicating with
cousins and anyone else with an interest in genealogy.
Here is my family tree.
I have been interested in genealogy since I was a teen listening to family stories. I just wish I'd known to ask questions and write things down! So, that's what I've been doing for 40 years...writing things down. After my husband and I married, I wanted to know which of our relatives aimed across the battlefield at the other in the Civil War. His family on the South's side, mine on the North's. I found at least one incident, in Vicksburg. We both had an uncle and a grandfather there. His grandfather (1819-1863) was buried on the battlefield and my uncle (1839-1863) died of his wounds later in a hospital. His 3rd great-grandfather left a widow and young children; my 2nd great-grandfather went home to start a family. Genealogy makes history personal.
