Treasure Chest Thursday

In an attempt to find information on my mother's side of the family, I searched for the library system from her hometown. Not long after I sent an email to their "contact us" area, I received a lovely email pointing me to a website.

I have found so many birth, death, and marriage records on that site and have had so many blanks filled in that I indeed consider that a great treasure!

A new branch

I've always been interested in my family history and have recently started working on my family tree past the first few generations.  Needless to say, I've unearthed some interesting information as well as some unexpected connections.

To be truthful, I have blogged before so this isn't an entirely new adventure, however, the topic is still somewhat new to me.

I have a friend that shares this obsession/passion with me and is my genealogy mentor.  She is a wonderful person who puts up with my random remarks of "Deb, you'll never guess who I'm related to!"  You can find a link to her blog on my page.

Please know that I realize I do not know everything about genealogy and I welcome any comments, suggestions, gentle nudges, and the like.
