Sometimes getting started with things is the most challenging aspect of them. I've been conducting genealogy research, informally, for a few years. It's just been in the past year, however, that I've actually reached a point of being able to steadily work on researching my family history. One thing I've discovered is that I've become a genealogy junkie.
I love the research and I love discovering my ancestors.
While the list of surnames I'm interested in will continue to grow, I am currently researching the following: Campbell, Hooker, Kendall, and Stephenson. My current geographic areas of interest are North Carolina and Virginia.
I am happy to exchange information with anyone, so please feel free to contact me if you also happen to be researching any of the above surnames, particularly if the geographic areas are the same.
My goal with this blog is to (hopefully) provide some helpful information to other novice genealogists who, like me, are steadily plodding through their family history research. I don't claim to be an expert on the subject, but I will post information that I think might be of benefit to others. I know that research can be an overwhelming process sometimes, and genealogy research is no exception.
I hope to be able to post to this blog at least once a week.
