About this blog

This blog is for both my maternal and paternal sides of the family who trace their roots to Virginia, Iowa, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas. I wanted to share the history of my family, their stories, and hopefully connect with cousins.

I grew up listening to the stories of my grandmother and mother. Which inspired me to start researching the history of my family. Genealogy is a true labor of love. It has been very interesting, challenging at times and fun. I hope that you will follow me on my journey as I  trace my family and tell their story. And hopefully inspire others to do the same.  Think were related?  Give me a shout!  I'm claiming family. :)
