My Name is Jenn. I first started doing genealogy as fun joke between fiancé and I because we found out that we both had Myers in ancestor line. We thought it would fun to see if our ancestor somehow related. Now I am very passionate about genealogy and love searching all my branches and limbs including my fiancés.
Some of the Surnames we are researching from Michigan/Canada Area are Plant, Cameron, Myers, Barrons and From the Pennsylvania/Canada Area are Myers, Wert, Orr, Shuey.
I found it sad how we have forgotten our ancestors but at the same time amazing just rediscover them all over again and the mysteries that surrounding them. One case in point. My fiancé grandfather died when he was young boy. His oldest bother did not even remember where their grandfather was buried. When we started doing our research we found that he was buried at local cemetery just up the road form where we live. What are the chance of that?! :)
