As one trail led to another, and as the internet made finding records easier, here I am with a full-time hobby. I have connected with so many new family members that a Facebook group was created so that we could share information and stories.
Feel free to contact me anytime. I'm always here.
"In each family there is one who seems called to find the Ancestors;
To put flesh on their bones and make them seem alive again;
To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and would approve.
"Doing Genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but instead a breathing of life into all who have gone before.
"We are the storytellers of the tribe."
My mother told me that she named me "Candyce" as a tribute to Candace Bergen, the young daughter of a person she admired - Edgar Bergen.

It is quite possible that my Paternal line could be followed back to the Wrights of Kelvedon, or Kelvedon Hatch in England, stemming from the son known as John the Middle.
My Maternal line can only be followed back to the early to mid 19th century Virginia. My great-great grandfather, Jeremiah Jackson, was an emancipated slave.
I was born in Claremont, New Hampshire in 1951 and lived with both of my parents in various New Hampshire towns until the age of 18 when I was married.My first school was a two-room schoolhouse in Temple, New Hampshire. Grades 1 through 4 were in one room and grades 5 through 8 were in another. I clearly remember enjoying my time in first grade as I sang my very first solo and acted in several scenes in one of our school's performances.
