Why Start a Blog?

I have been interested in genealogy for as long as I can remember.  I always loved hearing family stories and sitting at the kitchen table when my granny would bring out her old pictures.

I began seriously researching my family tree five years ago.  As time went on I began to acquire tons of pictures, documents, and keepsakes.  I realized researching was more than following the tiny green leaves to see how far back I could go.  Every person was more than just a name.  Every person has a
story.  Every person's life mattered.

These thoughts led to a new passion.  I decided to dedicate most of my time to documenting and preserving all of the STUFF that I am fortunate enough to have.

I still get excited every time I see one of those tiny green leaves, but now is the time to share the memories, the pictures, and the things that my family cherished.
