'My name is Judy Chesson and I have been doing research since 1994. The surnames listed here are from my family. I still look for people and items of interest in my own family, but I also search for others. I am a active participant on the Gen-Web New Hanover County, NC page and do transcriptions of census records, as well as cemetery transcriptions. I do look-ups for people in the New Hanover County area.

I was born in Wilmington, and have lived my entire life here. My family owned a popular fresh fish business here in Wilmington from 1949 until 1985 when it was sold. I began my work life outside the fish business, in January of 1979 when I went to work for General Electric Nuclear Energy. I am still currently employed full time there. I have been married since 1983 and have 2 wonderful sons who are living and 1 son who was tragically killed in an automobile accident on 07/07/07.

I have learned the hard way to keep sources listed and source your data when you input it. It will save you many hours of extra work trying to sort out what you have and don't have. To my credit, I have successfully completed searches for 10 different people that led to too many families to name here. I am very passionate about doing genealogy and doing it right.

If you find errors on my pages, please feel free to add to them. I am, by no means, perfect and would welcome any inputs you have.--Chessjcc 19:29, 12 September 2007 (EDT)
