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.

I do not care what anyone says, This is the very best team around. This team has dealt with homelessness, pneunonia, friends and family dropping in, plans changing, computer issues and more. We all still got in and sourced as best we could.

You are an amazingly awesome team and I am so blessed to have you all in Legacy Heirs. I hope to have you all back next year.
