Hello and welcome. I am semi-retired, now doing legal transcription from home.
I just realized that I have not taken the time to update this page. We are now living in beautiful North Georgia as of December 2015. I used to live in [usually] sunny Florida with my husband of 28 years, our Poodle named Pippin (in the background), and seven cats, Midge, Nicky (pictured), Freckles, Charlie, Inky, Maggie and Tippi (all rescues). And I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I actually became interested in researching my genealogy back in the 70’s. At that time, it was only an interest. I dabbled. Oh, if only I had been bitten with the “bug” and pursued my genealogy with all my might while those relatives who held information in their heads could have shared. I gleaned some information from them at that time but not nearly enough. I was young and Life and all it had to offer occupied most of my days.
I became interested again in the late 90’s, especially after being introduced to the Internet. I gathered a lot more information on my family history by way of the Internet. I even located relatives I didn’t know existed. But even that effort was relatively short-lived as the cares of the day-to-day survival took over. But now, oh, now, I actually have the time and the inclination to search, research and write! It’s too bad all my relatives who held the most information have moved on to greater things.
The blood of my ancestors courses through my veins. They are as much a part of me as life itself. Were it not for them and the choices they made, I wouldn’t even be here! By learning about them, I hope to learn more about me. I want to share the stories of their lives and in the process share bits and pieces of my life and, in the process of sharing, if I can impart any of my knowledge or wisdom regarding life in general and in genealogy which helps or inspires anyone, then my efforts are not in vain.
This blog, which began with the aspirations of being all about my family history, has evolved into a more eclectic blog. I say eclectic but, in reality, it has become more of an iPhone photography blog where I participate in various challenges and post some of my pictures. I do still, from time to time, just write and post about completely unrelated things.
All in all, I do hope that your visit here will be pleasant and uplifting for you and that you find something to your liking! I appreciate your time and comments!
