I started my climb up the family tree in 2000. My Uncle Bill thought that some one should document the family tree and said I was the one to be the keeper of the tree. I have now build a tree with both side of my parents families. I thought it would be easier to manage one tree then multiple trees. With working full time and doing chores on the farm my time was limited, but I grabbed a couple minutes here and there and have a tree with over 3000 people who are my family.
This hobby has become an obsession for me now. I love the idea of trying to give each family member a personality rather then just a name. I watch every video there is out there to learn more.
My family tree will never be completed but at least I can pass the information on to others who hopefully will continue this adventure.
