Finding our Roots

My Start and Story in Genealogical Research 

 

So, in the year 2000 I was helping my family with moving boxes here and there etc.. and came upon this

  mom I came upon a box of photos in the attic and started scanning.  My parents were cleaning out the attic and all of a sudden about 10 boxes full of pictures were put aside.  I asked my parents if I could take a box at a time and scan each picture.  They said yes, so I started and by the time I was finished it was 2 years later and 4,000 family photos and slides found and scanned.

 

( HINT … WHEN SCANNING FAMILY PICTURES.. MAKE SURE YOU SCAN BOTH FRONT AND BACK WHEN THERE ARE …NAMES…DATES …ANY RELEVANT INFORMATION ON THEM … SO IT IS EASIER TO GO BACK AND RESEARCH ….. TAKE IT FROM ME.. I SCANNED EACH PHOTO OVER AGAIN JUST TO DO THIS AS I KNOW … MY PARENTS WOULD BE PUTTING THEM IN THE ATTIC AGAIN … AND HAVE TROUBLE REMEMBERING WHERE THEY PUT THINGS ONCE THEY ARE ” PUT AWAY” … )

 

and this is what made my curiousity of my family tree go from just ” looking it up ” to passion and obsession. I live in NJ just over the bridge from Philadelphia, where this beautiful and awesome ship still stands.   Since then I found out more about my parents, grandparents on both sides, and in the year 2010 I made the leap of faith and subscribed to ANCESTRY WORLD …. going from knowing about 10 people to now ( January 18th 2016 ) over 8000, with my husbands family and mine combined.

It is now March 21, 2017 and today I found my 5th great grandfather on my fathers side born in the year of 1750!!  I think its important that we all know where we come from and so one of the reasons I started this website.
