I am a budding genealogist researcher. I began searching for some of this info in 1997. I was very fortunate to have a grandfather who had the same desire for this research.
I reside in ohio, married, and a student in college. Of which, I have found, makes it difficult to dedicate time to my research. Hopefully, I will find the time that I need soon. For, I have always found history to be interesting, so I do enjoy researching my heritage.
No matter how many seemingly brick walls I come against in this research, I find that I can get around it to come up with new and interesting information. If anyone has come across a brick wall, don't give up! You will find what you are searching for! Sometimes from the most unexpected of places.
