Good morning from warm and sunny Florida. This is my first venture into the world of blogging so I know the readers might find spelling mistakes but please have pity on me and don't be too harsh.
I live in central Florida and have been involved in genealogy since about 1963. My desire to learn and absorb more about genealogy led me down a path that I never had plans to walk. After about 20 years of doing research for myself and others who asked for my help, I decided to make genealogy my life's vocation. In 1986 I began earning enough money in research that I decided to leave my "day job" and put my full time efforts into something I love more.
By the year 2000 I had enough experience to apply to the Board for Certification for certification as a genealogist and never once have I looked back. Now I am reaching the age where most people retire but I dont plan to step off the stage of research. My plans are to train my daughter (who has a college education with a minor in history) to bring her education and office skills to my office and see if this will work for her.
