I’ve been researching my family history for almost 10 years. Technology has come a long way! I use Family Tree Maker 16 to compile all of my information. The states I research primarily include Ohio and Indiana, other states include Missouri, Connecticut, Michigan and New York. I don’t live in any of those places which makes research a little more problematic. I like to find little known websites that have tons of information on them – not the ones who direct you to other sites or pay sites.
Personal – Born and raised in Southwestern Ohio then moved to North Texas after high school. With the exception of a year and a half (back in Ohio) I’ve lived in Texas since ’79. Married to the greatest guy in the world who continues to amaze me with his depth of love, spirit, and values. We have four adult children (known on my personal blog as Florida Daughter, Photographer Daughter, Son, and Senior Daughter) and three grandchildren (one living with us known as First Grader). I’m the admin for our church. I volunteer at the elementary school as a room parent and sit on the PTA Board. I’m the webmaster for our church and my high school graduating class. My scrapbook design business has been in existence since October 2003. My hobbies include (besides genealogy), scrapbooking, reading really good books, cooking, and writing.
