My name is Cindi and I am an addict....I am addicted to Genealogy!!! I want to know it all, all my cousins, all my ancestors and all that I can learn about them.
I was born and raised in a small town in Southwest Michigan. Typical of most children raised in the 60's and 70's.
I loved listening to the stories that my Grandfather (Harold Hawks) told about his younger days. This is probably one of the reasons I like to know the stories behind the people in history.
The first time I remember seeing anything concerning my family's history was when my mother started a project that had to do with Michigan Centennial Families in the late 60's. I still have all of the paper research that she did for her father and sisters. They all received certificates from the state certifying that the Hawks Family had been residents of Michigan for over 100 years.
I picked up where she left off. I have been doing genealogy for over 25 years. The history behind the people fascinates me. The more that I learn, the more I want to learn. The connections that we all have with history and each other, keep me coming back for more.
I have some of my lines back to the 1600's, and some only as far back as the early 1800's, I am thankful for all of the people who have done research before me, who have made my research a bit easier, Hopefully my research can help someone else.
Have you taken a DNA test for genealogy? If so, login to add it. If not, see our friends at Ancestry DNA.

Thanks for the date of death for Alexander-5415. Do you have a source for that? Are you related? Update: I have added you to the Trusted Lists. I have been waiting for family to show up. We are related by marriage. My great-aunt married Charles Alexander's brother.

That way everyone knows what everyone is working on and we aren't working on the same error code in the same century.
For me, it makes it easier as I can choose to work on error code 402 from 1800-1899 and know that no one has touched that area yet so we aren't duplicating effort!
Hopefully that reverses some of the scariness?

Just concentrate on this and everything will fall in place the spreadsheet was taken from this link (DBE ErrorList TN) so use this link that will be very easy to do. This is where you go to get the names and profile to clean up. You will have to use this link on the Team freespace page to be able for that link to work.
