First a little introduction.  My name is Katie, I am 25, and have been researching my family genealogy for over 11 years now.  Although many view genealogy as a "retirement hobby", I don't see it that way.  Learning about your family's history makes you understand your own family in ways you never could otherwise.  And in my case (and for many others) I found a new sense of appreciation for my family, the sacrifices they had made for future generations, and everything I have.

I will be posting tips about where to begin, how to organize your research, the advantages of DNA testing, and hopefully, answering questions from readers :)

Whether you are just starting out or looking for ideas on where to find long lost ancestors, I hope you will find this blog helpful in your quest.
