I started researching my family trees in early 2003 when my uncle (my mother's brother) first started telling me about our family history and the things that he found. Later that year, I had gone on a trip to Kentucky with my parents for my first Watson family reunion, which ignited the fire in me to know my family histories and to research where I had come from. This passion led me to pursue a college degree in History a year later. I kept finding myself enjoying both the research and the growth of my family identity.
