Hi - I find myself revisiting my brick walls of late, and I found myself back here after a lengthy absence. I am still working on my Steere, Fletcher, Lavelle and those families that connect.
Hi there! I'm currently living in Marin County, CA, but am a native of Maryland. I belong to the Marin County Genealogical Society and am on the Board. I've been researching since 2005, and am primarily self-taught, learning by doing. I was an early-adopter of Ancestry DNA and several family members have tested also, which has been very helpful in my research. I married in 2017 and have been subsequently built a tree for my husband's family. When his father, who was adopted at birth in 1942 took a DNA test, I was able to piece together his birth family tree from shared matches, learning about NPE research as I went. I'm now coming back around to take more formal training and pick up the pieces I've missed along the way. I'm also hoping this community might assist with some of my brick walls - I've posted one such puzzle in a Surname Group already!
