Kathy's Genealogy

My Family Tree
As I research my family tree, I am floored by the vast amount of history I have discovered. Becoming part of the DNA community, I have found even more family whose branches on my tree extend all over the place. I am overwhelmed and over joyed in knowing where the descendants of each line went and where they live today.

With the technology we have today, I get to converse with my distant cousins and share genealogy information on each line. Some of us have visited face to face! With this blog, I can share with other distant cousins the history of our family lines. We are blessed to have this ability to reach out and discover each other and learn more about just how connected we are as Americans. That is..... we are related and our branches are many!
