I am new to WikiTree but have been passionate about genealogy ever since I saw a binder containing lots of information on my mom's family that my cousin Helen had done. I was hooked! I was still working at the time and had children at home so time to devote to genealogy was sporadic. I reconnected with another cousin and his wife during this time - she is an expert genealogist who has researched so much information on my paternal line! I have learned a lot from both of these cousins and continue to learn from them each time we get together (whether in person, via email or texts.)
I love the way WikiTree is one big tree and I appreciate the attention to detail and sourcing that is emphasized.
Now that I am retired I have lots of time to spend on quilting (my other passion) and genealogy. I want to leave my children a little piece of their past and I hope they cherish it as much as I do.
