Genealogy is my hobby. I have many hobbies, but this one has stood the test of time (no pun intended). I have spent many years collecting information, books, maps, photos and any other tidbit I could find that would add another piece to my puzzle. Only now do I have enough information and materials to begin piecing together the remarkable stories of individuals I have come to know along the way.
I’ve always been more of an historian than a strict record-keeping genealogist. It’s because I love the stories. They make the records and facts put on flesh and bone to become real people, living real lives in real times, with real emotions, trials, joys, hardships and triumphs.
In my real life, I am a Christian, a wife of 30+ years who has home-schooled our four children, a children’s minister at my local church, and a graduate of Louisiana State University.
