This, That, & Tother - A Little About Me
Hi, I'm finally breaking over and attempting a blog! Primary focus of this blog will be genealogy, with some history and since history is being made every moment, there may be current stuff as well. I've been doing genealogy for a long time off and on while raising a family, working and living life in general. Major surnames include Spencer, Jett, Watkins, Lucas, Jamison, Hobbs, Crawford , Herald-all of these are in centered around Eastern Kentucky. Then there is the 'northern line' which include Holetons, Rogotzki, Kopitzki, Damrau, Welke etc-this line centers around Michigan with some Ohio involvement. Then there is my spouse's line which all centers around central Kentucky-Colston, Aldridge, Wiley, Woolums, McGuire, Cummins, Harlow and Young. My goals are to be able to share things I learn, maybe pick up ideas that I've not thought of and have fun doing it. Fortunately, I'm experiencing the gamut of genealogy options-I have folks that have been in the US since the 1600's and then I have some that came over from Germany in the late 1800's. I have brick walls and brick walls:) One line seems to have been dropped in Kentucky! So far, any infamous characters have been on the wrong side of the law:( However, since I am a Spencer and Princess Diana is a Spencer-we must be related! LOL Maybe I can prove that one of these days....in the meantime, I intend to share findings, interesting stories, tidbits etc. To all those fellow Genealogists-Happy Hunting!
