I was born and raised in Minnesota. I live Duluth, MN with my husband and our two cats. My two greatest joys are reading and coffee.
In the spring volunteer with the Duluth Library Foundation every year for their Learning and Libations fundraiser. In the Fall I volunteer with the St. Louis county 4-H, and help with the competitive jigsaw puzzle competition, The Duluth Puzzle Derby. If you have never tried to complete a 500 piece puzzle in under 2 hours (with 3 other people) I highly recommend it.
I have always loved history. One of reasons I enjoy genealogy so much is that is living history. You create the story of a person of the past. I only started recently but I have defiantly caught the bug. It started when my mother-in-law mentioned an interest in the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution), and has spiraled from there. Now I am asking friends and acquaintances if they know their family history, and if they don't would they be interested to find out. Each new tree has it new challenges and new things that I learn, and I enjoy connect people with their history.
I love helping people, so if you come across and issue and think I might be able to help please feel free to reach out.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

I'm skeptical about the birth date and parents. Give me some time and I'll look further. You could too if you like. I'm in the midst of something else at the moment, but promise to get back to it in the next few days. Thank you.

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you regarding your question.
This is the G2G link for the conversation regarding General Data Protection Regulations that come in force on the 25th MAy
This is why it is important that the certain or still living boxes need to be checked on all profiles in regards to status

My search for my Jewish ancestors continues. That surname Baumann, you mentioned, I have since deleted from my family tree after finding the correct parents of my 3rd great grandfather, Solomon Snyder. So, I remain confused. I have found nearly 100 DNA cousins who are 97% to 99% Ashkenazi but no one has traced their family trees far enough back in time to line up with where my Jewish ancestors would have lived. Thanks for asking Larry
