I've been doing research for over fifteen years now. Just really fell into it and got hooked doing my husband's family as they have been here since before we became the United States. I especially love the stories that come with some family.
I've always wanted to discover more about my own family, but I'm 100% Polish and didn't know much once the ocean was crossed. Now, with many Polish records being digitized and with the help of technology to have researchers in contact with each other, I'm thrilled to be discovering new things about my family and am finally able to uncover some important records.
History didn't interest me much as a kid, but it now fascinates me since it helps me understand where ancestors were "coming from."
As for me, I'm from the midwest, industrial town born, now living in the country. My own four children are about grown, giving me time to do this. I'm an artist and teach part-time in adult education.

I'm Eowyn, a WikiTree Mentor and Team Member. We're building a single family tree that we all hook into. Our primary vision is to build a collaborative tree with just one profile per person, so please make sure to look for duplicates on WikiTree before adding a profile. Having dates and locations attached to every person assists in our mission as well!
Feel free to check out How To Use WikiTree. It's a great step-by-step guide to get you started.
Any questions I can answer? Happy to help :)
