Things you should know…

I began seriously researching my family ancestry in February of 2005.

I am not a professional genealogist, just someone who is interested in gathering whatever information she can about her famly. I think that knowing where your people came from, their culture, background, struggles, and just their history, in general, is essential.

I love the feeling I get when I learn something new about my family. It makes me feel like I am part of some bigger picture. I also love the fact that such a diverse group of people had to come together to create this one individual. Me!

Some of the surnames that I have at least touched upon include:

Petry, Harris, Douresseau, Baltrip, Prejean, Hendricks, Reaux, Briggs, Wofford, and Legnon/Loignon

    That really resonates with me. I am glad you dropped by my blog and told me where to find you. I love your blog and will come back to spend more time exploring. It has certainly strengthened my resolve to piece together the fragments of my history.

    Thank you.
