Getting started

So I’ve decided to take the plunge and start a genealogy blog. I began working on my family tree about four years ago and in that short time have made some fascinating discoveries – not all of them good – but some of them have definitely been fascinating. And along the way I’ve uncovered some mysteries – mysteries that I hope can possibly be solved by sharing them in a more public forum such as this blog.

Here are just some of the surnames in my ancestry:  Jacobs, Bliven, Pollard, Oakes, Warner, Kelley, Grout, Fisk, Hover, Mattson, Arnold, Dyer, Bowker, Brigham, Hutchinson, Rowe, Patterson, Hilton, Tenney, and Seeley. And what would a family tree be without a Smith or a Johnson thrown in?

I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve uncovered – including old family photos – and I’m hoping along the way to meet some new shirt-tale relations and to learn more about the various branches that stem from my tree. I can’t wait to see where this takes me!
