Welcome to my Genealogy Blog! Only time will tell if I keep up with this new phase in the life of my genealogy research, but I'm excited to be able to jot down some thoughts and hopefully meet some new cousins through this medium.
I've been working on genealogy and family history for over 20 years. I started as a young Boy Scout, and my dad had laid the groundwork for my early research. The fact that he was as history teacher inspired me to become interested in not only the history of my family, but the history of the country as well. The U.S. Civil War is probably the most interesting period to me, and I fondly remember visits to battlefields in Tennessee and Georgia as a young boy. Thanks, dad.
I've published a bit of my research on the web
