Susi Pentico here from the old Golden Gate Forum, The Genealogy Forum and now here on Genealogywise.com,
I have been doing research since young with MOM guiding me. I have been on my own for 50 years and enjoy it. I am a big Medical Genealogy get the word out person. It saved our first child and it could be saving more today. I have been a speaker for 15 years. I have taught at the local County Library system for more than ten years. I am currently the Educational Chairperson of Chula Vista Genealogical Society. California. I am expecting to do a Vitals Chat here on Thursdays again this fall. Hopefully I will be team teaching with Rita again. I have a blog here and with the geneabloggers group. One is for the classes I teach in Lemon Grove, CA. If only our students learned history via their families backgrounds it would not be boring. Hope to meet you all in the chat room and learn even more.
Wow! Very inspiring. Look forward to learning more!

Hi I've just joined this group and am from Nova Scotia Canada. I am addicted like everyone else to finding out all I can about my ancestors but am relatively new to this passtime. My father is English (Pound) and French (Arsenault); my Mother is adopted. Her birth Mother is Irish (McLaughlin) and her adoptive parents are Acadian - DeViller and Clairmont. I have found a lot of info on my Mother's adoptive family but nothing on her birth family. My Dad's lines I have had a fair amount of luck with too. If anyone is connected to these families I would love to hear from you and if you are a McLaughlin and your family immigrated at one point to St. John, New Brunswick Canada (where my Mom was born and placed into an orphanage) I would REALLY love to hear from you.
I'm from Central Victoria Australia. Have been researching my family history for about 10 years. I started with my interest in the family history when I wanted to know more about my fathers family. He knew nothing about them as he was orphaned when he was 5. I've discovered that I have about 50 1st cousins that I never knew about. And have since met many, many, more distant cousins through the research on all branches of the family.
. My main focus currently is my Taylor family, from Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales, arrived in Australia in 1842. I'm struggling a bit with them, but hopefully will knock down some brick walls soon.
I'm in Oakland County in Michigan. I am interested in My Family history, here in the United States and in Hungary. I love to find and share info I find. In fact, I have recently found and now speak with a second Cousin I never knew I had.....Great Find!!

Hello I'm Kathleen Newberry, Born in Lambeth London England, but raised in Huntingdon Cambs England, I met and married my Hubby in England where he was stationed in the Air Force and the he got tranfered back to the States, So I have been here 28 years. We have 8 kids and 6 grandkids.
I got started in Family History when my SIL showed me her family history and I've been hooked ever since.
I am from the Killgallon family from London (I have gotten as far back as Ireland).
So I'm looking into my Killgallon, Knight's, Ralph, and Riches's families.
But I'm having trouble with my Granddad Charles Ralph, I think I have found him but until I can get a BC I won't really know for sure.
I've started a genealogy blog. You may wish to check it out.
My paternal ancestors came to Massachusetts in 1620 and here I am, still here. They are from Bridgewater, Middleboro, and of course, Plymouth. My roots certainly run deep and seem to hold me here.
A remarkable history unfolded with my maternal 3rd great-grandparents who sailed from Baden, Germany in 1857. Their first home in America was in Potosi, Wisconsin. Their grandson and my great grandfather ventured to Eau Gallie, Florida.
Finding one's ancestry is a journey of love and fascination. I say is, not was, because the search never ends, as one is always looking for another link, pursuing another story. Each ancestor uncovered feels as if one has found a piece of gold; excitement heightens and you never want the journey to end.
