I started doing family research in 1987, when my dad said to me. What are you doing on your next vacation? I said I don't think I was going anywhere, because my wife had to work. He then said he would like to take me to Southern Illinois & show me some things. He showed me old homesteads and family cemeteries. The next thing I know I'm in the county courthouse looking up old records. That was the way you had to do it back then. It's been a fun ride. I still like looking at old records. I think the best time is when I find the land that they lived on.
