What is your level of genealogy knowledge?
Advanced Family History Researcher
If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
over 20 years experience in researching. If it's out there, I'll find it.
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
I originally stated working on my father's family tree in about 1993, as my father was adopted at 6 yrs old, and had only met his biological grandfather once. After that grandfather died in 1993, I had questions that my father was not able to answer, so I started sleuthing. I'm fornuate to have met some of my Great Uncles and many cousins from this family, and have now been accepted as a member (by most of them).
