Are you more than a book nerd? If you’re like me, you dabble is several types of nerdism. One of my absolute favorite hobbies is researching my family history. I spend a lot of time working in the Local History department of the library I work at and that has fueled my passion for history and research. For those of you who are like me and interested in genealogy, I have great news! I started a new blog specifically created for genealogy researchers and family historians. Sometimes I chat about my personal research and sometimes I share tips, advice, and general research techniques.
Welcome to The Tree. Between my husband and I, we both have lots of interesting family history stories including Mayflower ancestors (my husband has five, and no I’m not jealous or bitter but it’s really not fair), 19th century family photographs of immigrant ancestors, charter members of 18th century North Carolina churches, and so much more. I’m constantly learning as I continue with this hobby and it never ceases to amaze me the discoveries I make on this journey. I hope you enjoy it and who knows, maybe I’ll get you hooked on a new nerdism!
