"The memories we give may a lifetime live in the heart of those we hold so close." Unknown
I started researching my family history in December 2006. I would consider myself an advanced beginner in research. I have been researching my family history (Glover and Fredrick) and my husband's family history (Leyndyke and Corcoran). I am so impressed with all the acts of kindness I have found as I conduct my research. I truly believe genealogists are some of the most giving people I have come in contact with. I have corresponded with people from all over the United States and in The Netherlands. I only hope that I can pay it forward someday. Currently my interest has been centered around researching my colonial ancestors.
