As you guys now know, as well as being an obsessed garderner and fervent fixer-upper, for the last 7 years or so, I have been assisting my mother with our family history. When the technology started replacing paper records, and when DNA really started to show results, it was too much for her to deal with on her own. So she leaves me to uncover the new family members (Hello Adam, Janet and Shasta!) as well as the deeply buried internet records, and she is now telling the story of the family to the rest of our family.
To that end, we are going to attend a conference at the end of May in Southern California, which has me excited because of the heavy presence of DNA talks! I wish there was more on how to become a genealogist as a career but hey, I will be learning a ton of things here!
If anyone is interested in coming to the this with me, here is the link;
