I am a 58year old Mother of two grown sons and Grandmother of 8 wonderful grandchildren.We live far way from the Grandchildren but enjoy all the time we get to spend together. My husband and I love dogs and they are a big part of our family. I am retired from owning and operating a sporting goods business for 32 years and I finally have time to pursue my special interests full time. I have been interested in genealogy for years but never had the time to work on it very much until about 6 years ago when I did retire. Now I devote about 10 hours a day nearly every day doing my family research.
I love to fish, hunt and camp with Hubby and family every chance I get during the year. My college years were spent in the study of geology and sciences but I ended up pursuing many other interests. Reading is my favorite past time when I am not working on genealogy....history, science, archaeology as long as it is non-fiction! Crafting and scrap booking also find their way into my busy schedule. My business: "Cherished Photo Reflections", features digital photo restorations and Family Remembrance Art.
I have been married to the same great guy for 40 years and he lets me pursue any and all of my interests. My sister-in-law and I travel together to do research, attend conferences and in pursuit of our love for genealogy, we co-write another genealogy blog: "The You Go Genealogy Girls".
