  • Bio:

    Originally from North Dakota, Iíve called Colorado home for almost 30 years. I began my interest in genealogy when I received the box of pictures after my parents died, in 2002. Iím passionate about genealogy and share ways to help write and map your family history on my blog www.genealogyjourney.net. I feel that it is the stories that are going to be important to get our children and grandchildren interested in their family history, so my classes are liberally filled with stories.
