HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN FAMILY HISTORY/GENEALOGY? My mom got me started by dragging me to do research when I was in high school.  I hated it, but after years of doing the research, I started to fall in love with it!

WHERE DID YOU GET THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR BLOG’S NAME? I wanted to show that researching your family isn't just for the older generations.  I hope to show that genealogy research is "cool" and that everybody should be doing it!

WHAT DO YOU LOVE THE MOST ABOUT BLOGGING? I love that I get to share the stories of those who are no longer with us.  I also enjoy connecting with others who love genealogy!

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE NEW FAMILY HISTORY/GENEALOGY BLOGGERS? Don't put too much pressure on yourself.  At the beginning of the month, lay out what you would like to publish, but don't beat yourself up if you can't keep your schedule.  Life happens and blogging is supposed to be fun!

WHEN DID YOU BEGIN BLOGGING? I started in 2015, but started very slow.  I've made it a goal this year to post more consistently.  So far, so good!

  1. My Week 1 - #52Ancestor Challenge
  2. My “About Me” story

TELL US 5 FUN FACTS ABOUT YOURSELF! IT MAY BE YOUR LIKES, DISLIKES, A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS, OR A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT YOUR LIFE. If I wasn't doing genealogy, I would be a baker.  I absolutely love to bake and will spend an entire weekend trying out new recipes in one of my many cookbooks!

IF YOU COULD LEARN TO DO ANYTHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE? DNA!  I feel like I know some, but it's such a complicated and detailed subject that I feel like I'll never learn it all!  Oh, and I'd also love to learn to play the guitar!  Haha
