I’m a family historian and professional organizer, living in Asheville, NC with my husband and three sons.
I’m here to share my love of family history, organizational skills and tools, and my experience as a family historian and digital archivist. On this blog you will find:
- Stories about my own and my husband’s extended families.
- Stories about Asheville’s African American families and community organizations
- Anything related to family history or any of my other interests!
I enjoy arts and crafts of many kinds including card making, quilling, scrapbooking, genealogy, calligraphy, mosaic, crochet, painting, sewing & hand embroidering. In my work I have developed strong skills in photo organization and digital restoration, database management, writing, research, people finding, movie editing, and homekeeping administration. I have been researching my family history with growing intensity since I was about 18 years old.
Now I have about 3000 people in my tree, and about 700 living relatives, many of whom I now keep in intermittent contact with through my website. I’m never shy about asking anyone to share photos, funeral cards, or what have you. And it’s paid off! It seems I now have a steady stream of memorabilia of all kinds coming to my home from many different sources, and I do my best to preserve it, digitally store the precious stuff, share it with my cousins, integrate it into the family tree on the web.
