Genealogy

I am an amateur genealogist, a hobby I began in 2000. I started with information my two grandmothers provided me and began entering my ancestors and their descendants into a database. Today, I maintain more than 20,000 records.

DNA Research

A growing interest of mine is to use DNA evidence to confirm the documented relationships I’ve discovered via vital records (census, birth certificates, death certificates, etc.). By finding others who have similar genetic characteristics in their DNA, I’m able to identify new cousins once we determine our common ancestors.

These are the FamilyTreeDNA.com kits that I am researching:
