    Well, I've been at it again!  Trying to make updates and improvements.  It doesn't seem that long ago since I started doing genealogy.  But come this fall it will be 10 years, not long by some standards, forever by others.  Boy, I tell you that time sure flies when you're busy digging up those roots! 

    Welcome to my Genealogy Homepage.  I have tried putting together a page that would be of interest to both you and me.  I have quite a bit of links and information on this page.  If you have any questions, comments, corrections or ideas please let me know.  Or if you want your page linked here (like this is Grand Central Station or something!) just let me know also.

    One last thing before you begin your search, to see two of the cutest kids in the world, click on the camera

Abigail and Nikolaus  But, that is just a mother's opinion!

Now, step into my genealogy office.  Please excuse the mess I'm always in the state of utter confusion.  Organization never was one of my better subjects. Now go ahead and make yourself right at home and look around a bit.  Just try to ignore all the dustballs.  It's either genealogy or housework and it seems like genealogy is winning for now. ;)
