I’ve been researching my family history since about 1990. About half of my family has roots in Colonial America, beginning in the early 1600s. The other half came from Europe, mostly in the latter half of the 1800s. I also have an interest in and have researched an extended family in England, many of whose descendants still live there.

I’m a strong supporter of the Genealogical Proof Standard and of free wiki sites for genealogy. Both are needed to help clean up a lot of the “junk genealogy” that is everywhere on-line. I’ve also recently become interested in genetic genealogy and the potential for on-line learning. Although I’ve posted information on FamilySearch and WikiTree, I still find WeRelate the best site in terms of flexibility and the potential for really good quality research.

For me, genealogy is so much more than names and dates; it’s one of the best ways to learn history, particularly as seen from the perspective of people who actually lived it. Now, if only I can get all my information onto WeRelate, along with some of those stories I’ve learned about some very human ancestors!
