Hi, NormaJean. I got into researching the family tree after I retired in 2002. Oh how I wish I had gotten into it before everyone that had info passed. I did contact a cousin who found some info that her mother had. Then I joined ancestry.com and met a woman in Fla that had my fathers side traced back to the 1600's in England. Sadly she passed a few years ago so now I rely on Ancestry.com. I've had a couple more cousins contact through ancestry & also Facebook. Even found a few long lost nieces & nephews through Facebook.
I'm on a quest to get healthy. Looking forward to seeing your postings on the team sites.
