I first discovered my love of genealogy when my son was an infant. It became important to me to know what went into this tiny, perfect human my husband and I had brought into the world. I went to my mother for help, where, to my surprise, she pulled out a box of documents and photos she had collected when I was an infant! Seems it runs in the family. Using her research as a base, I entered all the information into the computer, and now, my family tree contains over twenty-two thousand people.
